Haryana to reserve 75% private sector jobs for locals, governor approves bill

Chautala said the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020' has been enacted in the Haryana.

The Haryana Governor on Tuesday approved a bill that reserves 75 percent of the private jobs for the people of the state. Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala informed that this is the day of great happiness for the youths of Haryana as now they will get 75 percent reservation in private jobs. The bill was passed by the state assembly last year.

Chautala tweeted that the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020′ has been enacted in the state.

The bill was tabled by Chautala last year that makes it mandatory for the private sector firms to reserve 75 percent of vacancies with salaries upto 50,000 per month for the locals of Haryana. The bill also contains a clause that says if the suitable candidate for the job cannot be found, the companies can invoke the candidate from outside the state and inform the government of such a step. The Haryana government had also said the reservation will be economically, socially and environmentally desirable.

Reservation in the private sector jobs for natives of Haryana was the main election promise of Chautala’s Jannayak Janta Party in 2019. The party had formed a government in the state in alliance with the BJP after winning 10 of the 90 seats.

Meanwhile, the BJP-LJP government in Haryana has been facing immense pressure from the farmers who have been protesting against the Centre’s three newly enacted farm legislations.

Last year, Chautala had said that if he was not able to secure a Minimum Support Price (MSP) for farmers, he would quit politics. Securing MSP is one of the main demands of the protesting farmers.

Amid speculation of rift between BJP and JJP over the farmers’ protest, Chautala had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah in January. After the meeting, Chautala had said the state government will complete its five-year term.
