The Department of Economics, St. Thomas College, Thrissur Kerala, India is organising a  National Seminar on Informal Sector: Challenges and Way Forward on 14-15 November, 2012. The seminar is being organised in the context of growing interest on this particular sector which in fact dominates the economy in terms of employment and number of enterprises. The sector which provides livelihood to majority of households has not received adequate attention in discourses in academic spheres or at the policy level.

The informal sector suffers from several problems ranging from difficulty of measurement, insufficient access to formal credit,  lack of social security, absence of protection through labour laws, and low level of technology to gender and caste issues. Apart from such marginalisation, labour in the informal sector suffer from multiple deprivations and vulnerabilities that include lack of access to basic amenities such as water supply, sanitation, health care, education, social security and decent housing. Experts need to find answers to such issues which has profound implications for growth, employment generation, poverty eradication and welfare a large.
