No quota plan, Telangana to ask pvt sector to hire locals
Author: Desk July 26, 2019
While Andhra Pradesh has passed a bill marking 75 percent reservation in jobs for locals in the private sector, it’s sibling Telangana has no such proposal, though the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government is encouraging the private players to recruit more locals by offering them incentives.
TRS leaders say the government is not likely to come out with any rule for reservation for locals in private companies as it could hurt the industry and affect the flow of investments into the state.
Though TRS-led the movement for Telangana state with the slogan of ‘water, resources, and jobs’, it did not push for reserving quota in private industry for locals.
This is believed to be mainly because Hyderabad, the Information Technology hub which drives the state’s economic growth, has a cosmopolitan culture with national and global giants employing people from across the country.
Analysts say any move to reserve quota for locals in industries may upset the investors in the city, also known for pharma, life sciences, aerospace and defence industry.No tags for this post.
