Haryana Deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala on Monday said that the state cabinet has approved the draft ordinance proposing 75 per cent reservation in private jobs for youth from the state. He called it a historic day for the youth of Haryana. “The cabinet has approved the draft ordinance making 75 per cent jobs in the private sector mandatory for youth of Haryana,” Dushyant Chautala said in a tweet.

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.

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.
