In a major decision, the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar led Haryana Cabinet has cleared the proposal on bringing in an ordinance reserving 75 per cent of all private-sector jobs for local candidates, reports Asian News International (ANI).

As per the press release issued by CM's Office, the ordinance titled, "Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Ordinance, 2020" is aimed at addressing the aspect of unemployment of the local population on a priority basis.

The ordinance will reserve jobs having a salary of lesser than Rs 50,000 per month in various privately managed companies, societies, trusts, limited liability partnership firms and partnership firms for local candidates.

"However, the employers will have the option to recruit local candidates from one district to only 10 percent. Exemption clause shall also be provided if suitable local candidates are not available for a particular category of industry," the press release said.
