A Study on Women Industrial Workers in Leather Footwear Industries (Paperback)
Leather footwear industry occupies a place of prominence in the Indian economy in spite of its massive potentiality for employment, growth and exports. In fact, backed with strong raw-material base and a large reservoir of traditionally skilled and competitive labour force, the Indian leather industry has made significant strides during the past two decades. Not only that, this industry has undergone a dramatic transformation from a mere exporter of raw materials (like tanned hides and skins) in the 1960s to that of value added finished products from the 1970s. Policy initiatives taken by the Government of India (GOI) since 1973 have been quite instrumental to such a transformation.
