Haryana Govt is open to suggestions from industry in framing rules for law on private sector job quota: Dy CM

Monday, 08 March 2021 | PNS | Chandigarh

Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala on Sunday said that the State Government is open to including suggestions from industry bodies while framing rules for the law that provides 75 per cent reservation in the private sector to job seekers from the state.

The first meeting for framing the rules will be held here on Monday, Dushyant said while talking to the mediapersons here.

Dushyant, who holds the Industries portfolio, said that it will be the government’s endeavour to frame the rules by the end of this month. Next month, we will run employment drives in all 22 districts and 67 employment exchanges in the state, he added.

Last week, Governor Satydeo Narain Arya had given his assent to the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020, providing 75 per cent reservation for those who have a domicile certificate and are seeking private-sector jobs of a monthly salary of less than Rs 50,000.

Dushyant said that the State Government held eight rounds of meetings with industry associations before this law was made and even now we will hold consultations with them. After consultations, if we have to incorporate some technical things in the rules, we will do that so that industry comes to our state in an even bigger way, he added.

When asked to comment on a section of the industry opposing the State Government’s reservation move, he said, “If there are objections or observations of industry, we will hold consultations and resolve it. That is the job of the State Government."

The Deputy Chief Minister said Haryana remains a favourite destination for the industry and top companies, including Amazon, are ready to invest in the state.

Hry to start wheat procurement from April 1Dushyant Chautala said that the State Government will start procurement of wheat in advance from April 1 so that farmers do not have to stock the early crop.

The procurement of wheat was started on April 10 last year. About 400 small and big procurement centres will be set up for the procurement of wheat. Also, the mandis will be set up according to the needs of the farmers, he said.

The Deputy Chief Minister said Haryana is the only state in the country where six crops -- wheat, mustard, pulses, gram, sunflower and barley -- are purchased at the minimum support price (MSP). For the first time, barley crop will be procured on the MSP and for this seven ‘mandis’ have been earmarked.

He said at least 7.25 lakh farmers of the state have registered themselves on the ‘Meri Fasal Mera Byora’ portal for the sale of wheat. Also, 1.03 lakh farmers of neighboring states have registered themselves on this portal, he added.

On the farmers’ protest at Delhi’s borders against the three Central farm laws, he said the farmers’ leaders should hold dialogue with the Union Government to resolve the issue.Hry becomes first state to achieve targets in rural road construction ushyant Chautala said that Haryana is the first state to successfully complete the first-batch of phase-III of the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana.

In this phase, 690 kms of rural roads were planned with an outlay of Rs 383.58 crore.

Apart from this, Haryana became the first state to achieve another historic success under the scheme as it got the approval for phase-II on March 5 and this included approval for 120 roads to be built at a cost of about Rs 550 crore, he said.

Dushyant said the total length of the roads sanctioned in 14 districts is 1,217 kms.

The Deputy Chief Minister, who also holds the Public Works Department portfolio, said that nine roads are in Ambala district, 17 in Bhiwani, two in Faridabad, 14 in Fatehabad, 14 in Hisar, three in Jind, seven in Kaithal, eight in Kurukshetra, one in Mahendragarh, 12 in Palwal, 11 in Panipat, four in Rohtak, seven in Sirsa and 11 in Sonipat district.
