Is reservation in private jobs below the pay of ₹30,000 per month for locals of Haryana effective?
Recently, the State Government of Haryana planned a rollout for Locals of the State. Under Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020, Locals are getting 75% reservation in Private Jobs below the pay of ₹ 30,000 per month.
There are already many schemes such as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme of the Haryana State Government going to work effectively?
Many activists and industrialists raised their concern because there are many workers working in Haryana from different states and such reservation may create an imbalance between demand and supply.
The Haryana State State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020 which is scheduled to come into effect from 15th January (commendation) is challenged in the Court by the industrial body of Gurgaon.
Arguments made against this scheme –
- Government is not able to pay wages on time under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGA), so it is impossible to reserve 75% jobs for locals.
- This scheme may create an imbalance between demand and supply of human resources in industries as well as many hospitals like Fortis and IT industries having workers from Kerala and North East. So, it will be difficult to manage nurses and workers.
- The Union Government proposed one nation one Ration Card during the Global pandemic. So that people could get benefits at most but this scheme is violative of the “one nation one Ration Card policy.”
