Haryana offers database for local private job hiring 

Khattar shared the plan with corporates, who supported the idea. The government will vet employees and share a database of registered residents with corporations for candidate selection.


Haryana’s Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, has announced that nearly 800,000 skilled and educated residents registered with the Haryana Kaushal Rozgar Nigam  (HKRNL) may be offered private sector employment based on industry requirements. HKRNL currently facilitates government department outsourcing employment recruitment and will now provide registered individuals with private company employment opportunities. The fees for providing manpower will be lower than the private sector, and the state government will vet these employees. Registered residents’ data categorised by skill level, education, experience, age, and other qualifications will be shared with corporates to identify eligible candidates for hiring.

According to HKRNL, 373 doctorate candidates, 45,342 postgraduates, 133,480 graduates, 9,216 ITI technical and non-technical graduates, 223,072 higher secondary pass candidates, 118,668 10th pass candidates, and 241,866 candidates below matriculation have registered with the Nigam. Chief Minister Khattar has stated that private companies can hire these candidates based on their skills, and the state government will prioritise skilling Haryana residents for employability in private companies.

HKRNL will provide corporates with data on registered residents based on their skills, education, experience, age, and other qualifications, but the government will not interfere with the recruitment process. During discussions with corporate representatives, Khattar shared that the Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) database, which contains income information on Haryana families, includes 1.3 million families earning less than Rs 1 lakh per annum and 2.9 million families earning less than Rs 1.80 lakh.  The government aims to provide self-employment and government and private sector employment to these families. Companies have shown interest in this employment recruitment method as it reduces their hiring and process costs, while employees would receive benefits such as ESI and PF.

The Haryana government has been focused on upskilling locals and providing employment opportunities in local industries and corporations, as there is reportedly growing resentment among locals towards companies hiring migrants. The government has also made provisions for job reservations for locals in private companies up to a salary of Rs 30,000, which industrial associations have challenged in the high court.
