Which States Have Maximum New Jobs?

As many as sixty per cent of the total frontline workers hail from these states and at least 65 per cent of the total demand for frontline workers is from these states.
City wise, Mumbai accounted for the highest contributors and seekers of frontline workers at 24.7 per cent and 20.9 per cent respectively.
