The UK remains the largest job creator in India via foreign direct investment, seeing off tough competition from Japan, creating one in ten jobs between April 2000 and September 2016, says a report.
The main reasons why UK companies are attracted to India are a growing market, easy talent availability, a stable political system, new business-friendly policies by state and central governments, use of English as the language of business, saturation of western markets and similar legal and educational systems, according to the report. "India remains something of an investment magnet to British companies. As Asia's third largest economy, India has attracted FDI from the UK into both industry and services sectors between 2000 and 2016," it pointed out.
"Between 2000 and 2016, British FDI created 371,000 jobs - 10 per cent of all jobs created by FDI. The total number of people employed by British companies in India currently stands at 788,000 - representing 5.3 per cent, or one in twenty, of private sector jobs," according to the report.
The chemicals sector receives the lion's share of British investment in India at USD 6.1 billion (25 per cent of UK FDI), followed by drugs and pharmaceuticals at USD 4.1 billion (17 per cent) and food processing at USD 3.2 billion (14).
Moreover, the UK is the single largest G20 investor in India, and supports close to 800,000 jobs.The UK remains the largest of all foreign investors into India after Mauritius and Singapore.

The United States of America probably has the most comprehensive system for gathering jobs data, which often moves the economic and political needle. The US Department of Labor releases non-farm payroll data every month, which counts enrolled workers but leaves out farm labour, household and proprietary enterprise workers. Apart from this data, the US government conducts a monthly survey called the Current Population Survey (CPS) to find out the rate of unemployment. The CPS has been on since 1942
In the mid-nineties, the survey was re-designed and computerised. The survey sample size is usually 60,000 eligible households — which means approximately 110,000 individuals. The sample is designed in a way to ensure representation from all over the country, and 25% of the sample is changed every month. Every month, the respondents are contacted in person or over the telephone for this survey.
More importantly, it tries to count every person above the age of 16, and there is no upper age limit. But it leaves out people who are in the army or are living in institutions. A person without a job and actively looking for one is counted as unemployed. A person who is studying but is also looking for a job is also considered unemployed — the job situation gets precedence over educational activity.

75 million youths to be unemployed in 2012: ILO
GENEVA: Nearly 75 million youths across the world will stay unemployed in 2012, said a report released today by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). This accounts for 12.7 per cent of the global youth labour force aged 15 to 24. The number is an increase of four million since 2007, said Xinhua, citing the "Global Employment Trends for Youth 2012" report.
The crisis-linked withdrawal from the labour market is particularly strong in developed economies, with an 18 per cent youth unemployment rate being projected for this year, the report said.
It said the rate would even be higher if one takes into account the 6.4 million youth worldwide who have either given up searching for a job or have decided to prolong their studies due to the extremely adverse conditions in the labour market.
The rate is not expected to come down until at least 2016, the report said.
Countries like India and China are very good example for the availability of abundant workforce at less cost compared to the other countries. Many Japanese firms like Samsung, Sony and Panasonic etc. in electronics segment had moved its manufacturing units to China due to availability of workforce at less cost with the aim of cost minimizing. similarly India stood top in availability of potential workforce in the IT sector which influenced foreign companies example companies belonging to United States like IBM, Microsoft and Oracle. etc to come and establish in India and also the key reason is not only the availability of large workforce but at low-cost compared to foreign workforce.
Wells Fargo & Co , the fourth-largest US bank by assets, had planned to create jobs in India and Philippines by moving its business with objective to cut down its costs by employing host countries (India and Philippines) nationals as they're available at less cost compared to home country (United States) nationals.
India: With millions of foreign tourists visiting the country annually, the Union Government of India has decided to provide jobs to 1 lakh youths through tourism industry during the 2012 financial year. During 2011-12, the ministry had generated employment for 33,000 youths in the country. This policy is in conformity with the resolution passed by the heads of Nations of 20 developed countries, recognising tourism will be a vehicle for job creation, poverty reduction and leads to economic growth.
Over 300,000 workers to be employed in solar, wind energy sectors in India
PTI -Updated: May 15, 2018
Over 300,000 workers will be employed in the solar and wind energy sectors in India to meet the country's target of generating 175 gigawatts of electricity from renewable sources by 2022, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has estimated in a report. The ILO said in its annual flagship report on the state of the global job market that action to combat climate change could create millions of new job opportunities and "more than" offset losses in traditional industries.
The UN labour agency said that 24 million new posts "will be created globally by 2030", but added that "the right policies to promote a greener economy" must also be in place for this to happen, along with better social safety nets for workers.
The report 'World Employment and Social Outlook 2018: Greening with jobs' said India has set itself the goal of generating 175 gigawatts of electricity from renewable sources by 2022, which corresponds to around half of its total electricity production.
The report cited estimates by The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) and the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC) that say that based on surveys of solar and wind companies, developers and manufacturers, over 300,000 workers will be employed in the solar and wind energy sectors in India to meet the 2022 target.
It said that in countries such as Denmark, Estonia, France and Germany, as well as in India, South Korea, the Philippines and South Africa, a number of environmental policies and national development strategies make reference to skills development for the green transition.
The ILO report predicts that the transition to a green economy will also lead to the loss of six million jobs in industries that are heavily reliant on carbon-based production.
Two sectors, namely petroleum extraction and refining, are set to see job losses of one million or more.
In line with the historic Paris Agreement on climate change accord of December 2015, UN Member States pledged to respond to destructive climate change, by keeping temperature rises to below two degrees Celsius, above pre-industrial levels. This should lead to more new jobs in the sustainable energy sector through public policy shifts - as well as private sector development - ranging from the promotion of electric cars to energy-efficient buildings, according to the ILO report.
