Delhi-NCR region has emerged as the leader in creating the maximum number of jobs in 2013, even as overall generation of new employment avenues declined last year, says an Assocham study.

Information technology, IT-enabled services and IT hardware sector together accounted for a majority share of about 43 per cent in the total number of new jobs generated across sectors in 2013, the study found.

"About 550,000 new jobs were generated across India during January-December 2013 as compared to over 552,000 new jobs a year ago thereby registering marginal decline of about 0.4 per cent," it said.

"Cornering over one-fourth share of the total number of new jobs generated across India, Delhi-NCR emerged on top with over 139,000 new jobs created during 2013," it added.

The study also found that new job generation plummeted in most sectors as about 20 out of the total 32 sectors tracked by the study registered a fall in new job generation.

Despite being the top employment generator, the IT/ITeS and IT hardware sector recorded a dip of one per cent in new job generations as it created over 236,000 new jobs in 2012 as against 234,000 new jobs in 2013, the study found.
