Hyderabad: Unemployment in urban areas in the state stands among the highest in the country and the highest  amongst the more developed states of the country including Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Delhi. 
 
Unemployment amongst urban males in AP stood  at 4.1 per cent for the period July 2011 to June 2012, higher by far than its counterparts, while that among females in urban areas is about 6.6 per cent. Overall unemployment rate in urban areas  in the state stands at 4.7 per cent. 
 
The National Sample Survey report released recently by the ministry of statistics and programme implementation says unemployment rate in urban areas at the national level stood at about 2.8 per cent.
 
The report considered those as employed who spent a substantial amount of the last 365 days in some monetary profit reaping work both in the unorganised as well as the organised sector. The report surveyed about 2,972 households in the urban parts of the state. 
 
AP bagged the dubious distinction of beating the other three southern sta-tes in unemployment. Urban unemployment in  Karnataka stood at   3.1 per cent, while in Tamil Nadu, it was lesser at 2.3 per cent and in  Kerala, it stood at 3.3 per cent. 
 
Experts believe that the high unemployment rate could be linked to the power situation in AP. Srinivas Ayyadevara, president of Federation of AP Chambers of Commerce and Industry, said, “In the manufacturing sector,  the main problem is  the deterioration in the power situation that started in 2011. Another reason is the downward trend in construction activity in cities like Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam around 2010.”
 
Unemployment in Maharashtra was much better at two per cent. Gujarat had the lowest unemployment rate of 0.7 per cent in urban areas. 
 
Unemployment among women in urban areas stood at 6.6 per cent, which stands favourably in comparison to Delhi and Kerala, where it is 44 per cent and 19.5 per cent respectively. However, the proportion of employed women  in the state is not very high in the state.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
