Does the informal or the unrecognized sector include public sector enterprises ? The defintion for formal sector given in the book is " all public and private sector establishments which employ 10 or more hired workers .

The public sector enterprises are not included in informal or unrecognised sector. This is because generally, the number of employees working in a PSE is more than 10. Moreover, a worker working in a PSE is entitled to social security benefits such as provident fund, gratuity, pension, etc. whereas, a worker working in an informal sector does not enjoy such benefits. Thus, on the basis of above features we can say that a public sector enterprise is not a apart of informal sector.
