New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Haryana government on Thursday passed a bill in state assembly allowing 75% reservation in private jobs for locals. The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill' 2020 paves the way to provide employment to 75 percent local youth for jobs having salary of less than Rs 50,000 per month in private companies, societies, trusts, limited liability partnership firms. The bill, however, also contains an exemption clause that can be invoked if suitable local candidates are not available for a particular category of industry.

"Our promise to lakhs of youth of Haryana is fulfilled today. Now 75% of all private jobs in the state will be from Haryana. This moment, which came exactly one year after becoming a part of the government, is emotional for me. I always wish to serve you with the inspiration of Jannayak and with your support, this is my wish,"he said on Twitter

Chautala’s Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), during the 2019 assembly election campaign, promised 75 percent reservation for Haryana residents in private jobs. The quota for locals in private jobs is on the lines of the of the law enacted by YS Jaganmohan Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh which has been challenged on the question of constitutional validity in the high court.
