Abstract

The Indian informal economy accounts for roughly 90% of India’s total workforce, with the degree of informality varying across indices of gender, geographic location, sector and job. While some employed in this sector are visible, others face uncertainty and precarity because of entrenched social and institutional factors that curtail their recognition and entitlements. Here Harshita Sinha (PhD Candidate, International Development, LSE) reports on three lives from the informal sector impacted by India’s lockdown in response to the spread of COVID-19.
