6 lakh Punjabis appear for IELTS, TOEFL annually & 1.5 Lakh #Punjab #students move to foreign colleges every year; emigration process cost is Rs 20 lakh for the 1'st year, i.e. 30,000 crore going out of Punjab each year.

Paucity of jobs, avenues, is draining Punjab !! Image
Before the Covid-19 outbreak, there were around 17,500 IELTS centers in Punjab, including more than 2,200 in the Doaba region only, the NRI belt of the state comprising four districts – Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Nawanshahr and Hoshiarpur. In Jalandhar alone, there are 1,550 centers
Consultants say that more than 40% of all students who migrated from India to foreign countries are from #Punjab. Parents see no future for their children, & drug addiction has only compounded the woes. In such a situation, the immigration industry has become quite huge Punjab !

#BRILLIANT CHARTS showing India’s GDP Growth - A Notable #ACHIEVEMENT by #Modinomics

Let’s look at India's nominal GDP that matters to Households & Businesses

EXCLUDING government borrowing & spending) Indians Households & Business Experience ~ZERO GROWTH since 2014-22 Image
This contrasts with the period FY 2008-14 when non-government component of GDP accounted for 38% of nominal growth.

Economists believe these animal spirits to be a vital ingredient for high growth of #SMEs & #Businesses Image
But you might argue that lots of STARTUPS have created jobs and lots of govt data shows lots of New Business Registrations since 2017

BOTH ARE TRUE but

During these yrs #Farmers, #Unorganised Biz & #SMEs LOST a total of #45-60 MILLION JOBS. So 1-2 Million Startup jobs is a drop

How, over the past 40 years, U.S food supply chain has become concentrated in hands of a few large multinationals, which serve as middlemen in everything from seed genetics to hog processing to supermarkets. Do we want such a business model in India; think hard, do we ?

#Punjab #Farmers were encouraged to shift away from #bajra #pulses #oilseeds #chana & enter #wheat-#paddy cycle by a assured price mechanism policy; why not assure MSP for #pulses to Punjab farmers, which can cut 16,627 crore imports, reduce paddy acreage & paddy #straw ?
An example to show, how the shift from pulses in Punjab happened.
👇
In 1960-61, #pulses acreage in #Punjab was 9.03 lakh hectares with production of 7.09 lakh ton, but; in 2018-19 Kharif, it dropped to 7500 hectares with a production of 6200 tons
The per kg cost of pulse import increased from Rs 16.88 in 2006-07 to Rs 42.80 in 2016-17 (rise of 10%/year). If India were to continue to import large quantities of pulses, the unit cost of such imports is to increase for sure. Why not encourage Punjab farmers to grow pulses ?
