According to a document shared by Chautala on Twitter, the draft ordinance will be passed in the next state cabinet meeting, following which the provision guaranteeing 75% of jobs to locals will come into force. It, however, will not impact the existing jobs in the state. As per the document, any new company/factory or new hiring by existing company/factory will have to follow the new provision.
Those who want to take the benefit of this new rule will have to furnish permanent resident proof and the labour department will be responsible to implement the new law. However, the law will be applicable only for posts that have salary not more than Rs 50,000.

After forming the coalition government, Dushyant Chautala had announced that their government would bring a bill to provide 75% of private sector jobs to the local youth.
While Dushyant was clear about what he had promised, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that his government would evolve an institutional mechanism to provide the reservation in private sector jobs to youths in Haryana.
