Haryana job quota in private sector: The Haryana Assembly on Thursday passed a bill to give 75 per cent reservation in private sector jobs to youth from the state, an election promise made by ruling alliance partner Jannayak Janta Party. The government is headed by Chief Minister ML Khattar.
The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020 provides a 75 per cent job quota for local people in private sector jobs which offer a salary of less than Rs 50,000 a month.
It applies to private companies, societies, trusts and partnership firms, among others, located in the state.
The state governor has to give assent to the bill before it becomes law.
The Bill was tabled by Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala in the state assembly here.
Giving 75 per cent reservation in private sector jobs was a key poll promise by Chautala's Jannayak Janta Party, which the BJP's coalition partner in the state.
After the House passed the Bill, Chautala said the promise made to lakhs of youth has now been fulfilled.
Earlier this year, the BJP-JJP government had failed to get Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya's assent to an ordinance on the job quota.
Narain had sent the ordinance to the President for his consideration.
The state government had then said that it will table a job quota bill during the Vidhan Sabha's monsoon session. But amid fears of coronavirus infection the House sat only for one day in August, only to resume now.
When asked about the Governor's move, Chautala had then said that since some provisions in the ordinance gave it "an overriding effect over other laws", Narain may have decided to refer the matter to the President.
