The Punjab and Haryana High Court rightly rejected the Central Government’s attempt to make the decision to reserve 75 per cent seats for local candidates in Haryana’s private sector jobs as a state matter. The central government had told the court in this matter that since it is a state law, the central government does not consider it necessary to take any stand on it. Therefore, she would not like to comment on this matter. Keep in mind, the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act 2020 was passed in the state assembly in March last year and after the approval of the governor, it was also notified by the labor department in November. According to this law, 75 percent of the seats in all the posts in the private sector companies, trusts, societies in the state with a salary of Rs 30,000 per month or less will be reserved for those candidates who are residents of Haryana. . Under this, all those companies come, which have ten or more employees. Various industry organizations have challenged this law, saying that through this the state government wants to implement reservation in the private sector, which is a violation of the rights of the employers. Till now, jobs in these sectors have been given on the basis of the merit and skill of the candidates.
