On Tuesday i.e., 2nd March 2021 Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana, Dushyant Chautala stated that the Haryana Government has given a green signal to the bill which stated that 75% of seats in the private sector jobs with a gross salary up to Rs. 50,000 per month will be reserved for the people (youth) of Haryana. The law was passed by the Haryana state assembly last year.
Dushyant said, “ This is the day of great happiness for the youths of the state. The youth of the state now will get 75% reservation in the private sector jobs. They will get a reservation in every company, society and trust.”
The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill 2020 is said to provide a quota for local people in private sector jobs that offer a salary of less than Rs. 50,000 per month. The quota will be applicable for 10 years initially, as stated in the bill.
Other than overcoming the unemployment among the local people, the state government will demoralise the rush of migrants to seek low-paid jobs, which the state government says has a “significant impact” on the local infrastructure, which leads to the “proliferation of slums”.
The Local Candidates Bill is said to cover private companies, societies, trusts and partnership firm of the state. It also provides training to eligible local candidates during the unavailability of qualified people. The local candidates defined under the bill are those domiciled in the state. And to achieve the domicile status, a person should be born in Haryana or have been a resident of the state for at least 15 years.
Providing 75 % of reservation in the private sector jobs was a key promise done by Dushyant Chautala’s JJP government which was formed in coalition with the BJP government in the state.
