Yet a report that documents the trend in hybrid work, and that this affects both the companies, the workforce, and the subcontractors. This is published in a report by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. 

India’s gig economy is set to triple over the next 3-4 years to 24 million jobs in the non-firm sector from the existing 8 million. 

Especially the personal services area will be growingRajah Augustinraj, principal, BCG, and the lead author of the report states:

During the lockdown, we saw a steady increase in the number of gig workers in India. People who had lost jobs were finding gig opportunities closer home. The gig economy has the potential to help people in the unorganized sector learn new skills and help them build a better quality of life for themselves and their families. 


Gig and platform jobs will evolve with time across several levels and a part of it will be high skilled and well-paid jobs. Even within sectors such as oil and gas, small and medium businesses, and healthcare, there will be greater demand for highly-skilled gig workers. 

This means, that this trend is growing across multiple sectors, and not only in traditional blue-collar or white-collar areas.
