The Jharkhand Assembly on Wednesday, September 8, passed a bill providing 75 per cent reservation to residents in private sector jobs with salaries up to Rs 40,000 a month.
Once the Jharkhand State Employment of Local Candidates in Private Sector Bill, 2021, is enacted, the state will be the third to establish a reservation law in the private sector, after Andhra Pradesh and Haryana, The Indian Express reported.
This would be implied by the shops, establishments, mines, enterprises, industries, companies, trusts, partnership firms and employers with ten or more people working under them.
"I am committed to employment to moolvasi and tribals. The select committee's report has been tabled the House, and the government is committed to employing locals," Chief Minister Hemant Soren while addressing the House.
A person should be a native of Jharkhand, with a monthly salary of less than or up to Rs 40,000, and is required to register in a designated portal within three months after the Bill comes into force as law.
The candidates will not be able to avail the job if the registration process is not completed. Despite the guidelines, an operation problem of confirming the verified beneficiary could be an issue.
