Starting from November 2004 till 2008, MEtS was conducted once a year.Considering several shifts in employment dynamics even within a year’s time, MEtS was converted into a quarterly survey from 2010 tocapture the changes in employment scenario in India from one quarter to another.The primary objective of this employment survey is to understand the employment trends in the organized sector on a quarterly basis. Thepresent survey captures the employment situation in the organized sector during the fourth quarter of Calendar Year 2011 (from October toDecember 2011) and the likely scenario in the first quarter of the Calendar Year 2012 (January to March 2012). The study results are basedon a survey in December 2011 of 639 sample companies spread across 13 different sectors. The feedback was gathered from the top HRpersonnel or top management of the companies, who could share valuable insights on employment related issues. The major focus of thesurvey is to estimate the changes in employment scenario across sectors and space. The other issues highlighted in the survey are changes insalary in case of lateral hiring, recruitments for different experience categories and hiring for different functional roles.The report is presented in four sections. The first section (Section A) discusses the recent trends and an overall view of the Indian Economy.

Section C presents a picture of thechanging pattern of employment in different sectors of the economy. A snapshot of the changing scenario in 8 selected cities is also given inthis section. The final section (Section D) concludes the study highlighting key issues.
