During this pandemic situation one of the most talked issue is unemployment in our country , as during this time many faced the unemployment issue due to which the economy of India have suffer too.
But now situation is being better day by day but what about the losses the people had suffer during this pandemic many of us lost their jobs, means to livelihood.
Many states approach their own theory for the betterment of the states and one of them was reservation in private jobs for locals.
In Recent time’s government of Jharkhand have talked about the policy of employment in which 75% of the reservation will be allowed in private sector jobs.
All the jobs which have at least 30 thousand as a monthly income will be reserved up to 75 % for the local people.
This decision had been taken by Jharkhand Government as following the foot print of Haryana government for reservation of jobs for local up to 75 %
After implementation of this policy Jharkhand can become second state in India who have reserved 75 % jobs in private sector for the local youths.
This policy have been approved by the cabinet member of Jharkhand its implementation is yet left.
PROBLEMS RELATED TO THIS POLICY –
It will be difficult for the Jharkhand Government to decide that who will be benefited under this policy scheme.
The Governor of Haryana approved the bill of – The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020 –
After which the reservation have been made in private sector jobs up to 75 % for the local residents.
This scheme is made in all the companies whose salaries is less than 50 thousand.
This quota will be valid till 10 years at starting.
When any person hold its domicile of that particular state.
According to Haryana Government – you will be called as domicile of that state when you have reside at least for 15 years over there.
MERITS POINT OF THE BILL –
During this Pandemic situation to tackle the unemployment it is necessary to implement this policy.
To discourage the migration who shift from state to state for low paid jobs also.
So this bill will cover society, private companies, trustees and partnership firms.
DISADVANTAGE OF THIS BILL –
This bill will bring the unfair competition between the deserving and the local candidates.
This bill was challenged in court too and was mentioned that this bill should be declared as void and unconstitutional because this violate the ARTICLE 14 15 16 19 and 21 of the Indian Constitution.
This bill act as an internal barrier.
And Haryana government also neglected the fact that skilled workers contribute to 70 % of the GDP of the state, but if due to reservation unskilled workers are taken then due to this state will have to suffer and bear the consequences.
Most companies have slammed the new local job quota law and asked the government to focus on training and skilling local youth.
Several experts have explained that Haryana is facing immense competition from other states that have now started attracting industrial investment.
Those states, however, are offering liberal policies and employment-incentive schemes. The new local job law could severely reduce new investments in Haryana.
Reservation affects productivity and industry competitiveness.
Therefore, government should focus more on minimising the inequalities in income, status, facilities and opportunities. Skilled and well deserved Citizens should get opportunities in every field.
