Referring to a report of the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated at this time that the state’s unemployment fee stood at 6.5 per cent in June this 12 months, which was “far better” than the nationwide common at 11 per cent.
She stated that is as a result of financial technique adopted by her authorities to deal with the COVID-19 disaster and the devastation brought on by cyclone Amphan.
“We’ve implemented a robust economic strategy to tackle #COVID19 and the devastation caused by Amphan. Proof lies in West Bengal’s unemployment rate for the month of June 2020 which stands at 6.5 per cent, far better than that of India at 11 per cent, UP at 9.6 per cent and Haryana at 33.6 per cent, as per CMIE,” Ms Banerjee stated in a tweet.
According to information launched by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy on Wednesday, the nation’s unemployment fee fell to 11 per cent in June from 23.5 per cent in May, as financial actions resumed after the lockdown restrictions have been eased.
