Supreme Court of India overturns HC order halting 75% Haryana quota for private jobs

Supreme Court of India overturns HC order halting 75% Haryana quota for private jobs

On Thursday, the Supreme Court overturned a High Court ruling that had stayed Haryana's law reserving 75% of the private sector jobs for state residents.

The Supreme Court stated that the Punjab and Haryana High Court did not provide adequate reasons for its judgment, giving the high court four weeks to make a decision in the matter. The Haryana government challenged the decision in an appeal.

The Haryana government was also asked not to take coercive action during this time by a Bench that included Justices L Nageswara Rao and B R Gavai.

"We will not deal with the merits of the matter, as we request the high court to make a decision expeditiously and not later than four weeks. The parties are directed not to seek adjournments or fail to appear before the bench for setting hearing dates," the Bench said.

An interim stay had been granted by the Haryana High Court on February 3 in response to a petition filed by various industry associations in Faridabad and other regions of the state including Gurgaon.

In November, the State Discrimination Act was notified, and it came into effect on January 15, and provides 75 percent reservation for job seekers from the state. It applies to jobs paying a maximum of Rs 30,000 per month in the private sector.
