Haryana govt challenges HC’s order staying 75% quota for locals in private jobs in SC


The Haryana government has filed an appeal with the Supreme Court, challenges the Punjab and Haryana High Court’s decision to stay a state law that provides local candidates with 75% reservation in private sector jobs.

After Solicitor General Tushar Mehta requested an urgent hearing, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Manohar Lal Khattar government’s appeal on Monday.

Before the bench, the solicitor general noted that it had stayed the act after only giving him 90 seconds to argue.

Previously, the state’s emphatic arguments for treating the legislation as prima facie valid in the interests of the state’s unemployed youth were rejected by the high court, which stayed the law.

“We’ve heard India’s learned solicitor general. After hearing Tushar Mehta’s submissions on behalf of the Haryana government during a hearing that lasted less than two minutes, a bench of justices Ajay Tewari and Pankaj Jain directed, “We admit the petition and stay the Act.”

The Haryana government’s law provides for a “local candidate,” who is defined as someone “domiciled in the state of Haryana” under the Act. Every employer is required by law to hire 75% “local candidates” for positions with a gross monthly salary of less than 30,000 dollars. On January 15, the Act, which covers private companies, societies, trusts, and partnership firms, went into effect. The law was made in effect for a period of ten years.
