Data from the official website shows that household labor output fell 13.67% to 18.5 million last month from 21.2 million on April 21, while personal work production under the scheme fell 18.3% to 278.4 million from 340.7 million in April last year.

Household employment demand stood at 23.2 million in April 2022, down 11.1% from 26.1 million in April 2021, while personal demand fell 13% to 32.8 million last month from 37.8 million people claiming jobs under the scheme in April 2021.
This demand, though higher than in 2019, is declining, suggesting a gradual return to normalcy in the labor market. In April 2019, 21 million households applied for jobs under the project, while personal demand stood at 30.3 million.
“The rural labor market is moving towards equilibrium. With the removal of the cowardly fear, rural migrants are now returning to urban India and the rural misery is subsequently declining,” said KR Shyam Sundar, a labor economist.
Sundar, however, thinks that the data for the next two quarters will take into account the important geopolitical crisis, inflation and other factors that will determine economic growth in order to stabilize the rural market.
