The petitioner said that this law is actually a violation of the rights of skilled youth.
The Punjab-Haryana High Court has issued a notice to the state government on a petition challenging the provision of making 75 percent reservation mandatory for local residents in private sector jobs in Haryana, asking why it should not be banned.
The petitioner, Faridabad Industrial Association, told the High Court that people are selected in the private sector on the basis of qualifications and skills. If the right to choose the employee is taken away from the employers then how will the industry progress? Haryana government's decision of 75 percent reservation is an injustice to the deserving people. This law is a violation of the constitutional rights of those youth who are free to work in any part of India on the basis of their education and qualification.
The petitioner said that this law is an attempt to introduce the system of getting jobs in the private sector on the basis of accommodation in lieu of qualification. If this happens, a situation of anarchy will arise in Haryana regarding employment in the private sector. This law will also hinder the development of the private sector and due to this, the industry may start an exodus from the state.
Violation of rights of deserving youth
The petitioner said that this law is actually a violation of the rights of skilled youth. The Act, which came into force on March 2, 2021, and the notification dated November 6, 2021, to reserve 75 percent jobs, is against the provisions of the Constitution, Sovereignty. There has been a demand in the petition to dismiss the Employment Act 2020 outright. The petitioner said that the Haryana government is going to bring this law into effect from January 15. In such a situation, now after hearing the arguments of the petitioner side, the division bench of the Chief Justice has issued a notice to the Haryana Government on the petition and ordered to file a reply. Also, till the next hearing, the Haryana government will have to present its side in the matter of stay.
