Haryana’s Local Reservation Law is Unconstitutional | Part One
The State of Haryana passed the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020 which provided 75% reservation to local candidates in all private sector jobs in the state which paid less than Rs. 30,000 per month. Last week, the Punjab & Haryana High Court struck down the law as unconstitutional for violating the fundamental rights to movement, settlement and trade, occupation and business.
In this episode, Saurabh Todi and Shrikrishna Upadhyaya dissect the issue of local reservation in the private sector, the anti-migrant sentiment associated with such policies, and the reasoning and implications of the High Court verdict.
