In context with the Census definition of a “worker” in India, what is the exact meaning of a “Marginal Worker”?

Answer: [C] A worker who gets employment for less than 6 months

The Census classifies Workers into two groups namely, Main workers and Marginal workers. Main Workers are those workers who had worked for the major part of the reference period i.e. 6 months or more. Marginal Workers are those workers who had not worked for the major part of the reference period i.e. Less than 6 months.
