Haryana Govt Passes Bill to Give 75% Reservation to Locals in Private Sector Jobs
GUWAHATI: In a significant move that could have a far-reaching impact, the Haryana government has passed a bill to give 75 percent reservation in the private sector to locals from the state.
The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020 provides the quota for local people in private-sector jobs that offer a salary of less than Rs 50,000 a month.
It applies to private companies, societies, trusts, and partnership firms, am
ong others, located in the state.
The governor of the state has to give assent to the bill before it becomes law.
The bill provides for training to eligible local candidates when qualified people are not available.
Giving 75% reservation in private sector jobs was a key poll promise by Chautala’s Jannayak Janta Party, which is the BJP’s coalition partner in the state.
Earlier this year, the BJP-JJP government had failed to get Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya’s assent to an ordinance on the job quota.
