Pvt jobs: Jharkhand plans 75% quota for locals | India News – Times of India

Must read

RANCHI: The Jharkhand government’s plan to reserve 75% of private sector jobs for locals has evoked a mixed response from the industrial circles here, with many saying that even though the move has a “noble objective” of addressing unemployment, it could pose problems for industrial growth and investments if such a law is enacted without proper skilling of the state’s workforce.
To fulfil its poll promise, the Jharkhand government on Friday decided to reserve jobs with a monthly salary of Rs 30,000 in private firms for locals. A formal bill will soon be placed in the assembly.
The move follows a similar one made by the BJP-led government in Haryana, which recently reserved 75% jobs for its residents. The decision was severely criticised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), which had asked it to reconsider its decision. CII’s local unit in Jharkhand gave a similar reaction when asked to comment on the cabinet decision.
The Federation of Jharkhand Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FJCCI), the state’s apex trade body, which is affiliated to FICCI, is of the view that such a law should not be enacted in haste.
