Auto manufacturing holds the promise of employing many young
Indians in relatively well-paid, high-skill employment, but this
promise is threatened by the industry's role as a site of immense
conflict in recent years. This book asks: how do we explain this
conflict? What are the implications of conflict for the ambitious
economic development agendas of Indian governments? Based upon
extensive field research in India's National Capital Region, this
book is the first to focus on labour relations in the Indian auto
industry. It proposes the theory that conflict in the auto industry
has been driven by twin forces: first, the intersection of global
networks of auto manufacturing with regional social structures
which have always relied on informal and precariously-employed
workers; and, second, the systematic displacement of
securely-employed 'regular workers' by waves of
precariously-employed 'de facto informal workers'.
