Haryana cabinet withdraws ordinance on private job quota

The Haryana cabinet on Friday withdrew the ordinance it had approved two months ago to provide 75% reservation in private sector jobs. The ordinance was not promulgated by the governor, who had reserved it for the consideration of the President. The proposed legislation was sent to the Union home ministry for scrutiny before the President took a call.

The BJP-JJP regime intends to bring a replica bill in the assembly after withdrawing the ordinance. A replica bill passed by the assembly will also have to be reserved for the consideration of the President, officials said.
