The Haryana assembly had passed the Local Candidate Bill 2020 on March 2, 2020.
The BJP-led Haryana government today issued a Gazette Notification ordering to reserve 75 per cent of employment opportunities in the state for locals in various companies. The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020 will come into effect from 15th January 2022. It provides for the reservation of 75 per cent of new jobs for local candidates in various companies, societies, trusts, and limited liability partnership firms situated in the state.
A gazette issued today by the Haryana government reads, “In exercise of the power conferred by sub-section 3 of section 1 of the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020 (3 of 2021), the Governor of Haryana hereby specifies the 15th day of January, 2022 for the purpose of said sub-section.”
