To ensure 75% jobs in the private sector are reserved for those who are domiciled in the state, as announced in July, the Haryana government plans to introduce a Bill in this regard in the next assembly session, said deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala on Saturday at the Independence Day celebrations held at the Tau Devi Lal stadium in sector 38.

“The state government will also provide training to the youth to prepare them for competitive exams at the state and central level. Those students who get more than 90 per cent marks will be chosen for this assistance and the goal is that Haryana should increase its share in central government employment from present 7-8 percent to 12 to 15 percent,” said Chautala, adding that this will ensure that youth are able to get jobs outside the state as well.

Haryana government on July 6 had approved a draft ordinance requiring private companies, societies, trusts and similar bodies to reserve 75 percent of new jobs with less than ₹50,000 salary to those domiciled in the state, with some exceptions. Under the proposed Haryana State Employment to Local Candidates Act-2020, all private units with more than 10 employees would be covered under this.

On Saturday, the deputy CM also inaugurated 17 development projects in the district which have been developed or are being developed at a cost of ₹10.44 crore.

Six of these projects are located in village Naurangpur, six in Bajghera, two in Dharmpur and one each in Nakhrola and Maujabad.

Around 100 women from the Panchayati Raj institutions were gifted scooters for doing a commendable job during their tenure.

Chautala also said that their government was working hard to bring foreign investment in the state to boost the industrial sector and a lot of work was being done in this regard. He also said that the state government has given three options to Maruti to shift its plant in Gurugram to either Sohna, Jhajjar or Kharkhauda in view of its planned expansion.

Referring to the recent issue of illegal registries, he said that efforts are being made to ensure a better and foolproof registration system with minimum human intervention.

Prior to his address, Chautala unfurled the national flag at Tau Devi.Lal stadium. He also felicitated the Covid 19 warriors from different departments for their efforts to contain the virus spread.

The Independence Day celebrations were also held across the city with RWAs, NGOs and other civil society organisations hoisted the national flag, planted trees and distributed face masks to residents to mark the occasion.
