Over the next five years, India will need to create 12-15 million non-agricultural jobs per year to address the gap in jobs. However, between 2005 and 2012, only eight million such jobs were created. Hence, the gap of 4-7 million jobs a year needs to be addressed, which is likely to rise with the rise in young people joining the labour force.
