Lucknow: Haryana Governor Satyadev Narayan Arya has approved the bill providing 75 percent reservation in the private sector to the job seekers of the state, but the real question is how beneficial will this bet be for Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar or already The problems of this government are going to increase due to the opposition of the farmers. The Haryana Assembly passed the bill last year. This was a major election promise made by the ruling coalition partner Dushyant Chautala's Jananayak Janata Party.
Government will notify soon
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said at a press conference here, “The Governor of Haryana today gave a bill giving 75 percent reservation in the private sector to job seekers. The government will notify it soon. ”
For local candidates, the Haryana State Employment Bill, 2020 provides quotas for local people in private sector jobs who provide a salary of less than Rs 50,000 per month. According to the bill, this quota will be initially applicable for 10 years.
Through this law, the Khattar government wants to curb the influx of migrant workers from outside by helping the local people. The government believes that the arrival of people from other states has a "significant impact" on local infrastructure and leads to "the spread of slums".
Giving 75 per cent reservation was JJP's main election promise
The bill includes private companies, societies, trusts and partnership firms in the state. It provides training to qualified local candidates when qualified people are not available. It defines the local people in the state. For domicile status, a person must be born in Haryana or reside there for at least 15 years. Granting 75 percent reservation in private sector jobs was a major election promise made by Dushyant Chautala's JJP, which is an alliance of BJP in the state.
On the lines of Andhra Pradesh, the Khattar government has made this announcement to provide up to 75 per cent reservation to local people in private sector jobs in the state. It does not take into account the problem that private sector companies may face with this law.
Experts say that this decision of the government may adversely affect the industries in the state. JJP MLA Ram Kumar Gautam himself has strongly opposed this bill in the assembly. He said that if other states implement the reservation system in the same way, then it can cause a lot of trouble in the country. Opposition legislators also believe that the bill violates Article 16 of the Constitution.
