Local hiring will soon be compulsory in Haryana

Maximum consideration will be given to local talent in all mega projects.


While inviting investors to Haryana, a delegation from the State, led by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar highlighted the state’s locational advantage, massive consumer base, affordability and propensity to consume, progressive rural economy, availability of skilled labour and industrial land, among the ‘25 reasons to invest in Haryana’.

The Haryana Government will also impose a condition on investors to hire maximum local talent. A similar proposal was introduced by Gujarat making it mandatory for manufacturers to make 80 per cent recruitments from the state itself. According to the CM, it is Haryana’s responsibility as a state to ensure that maximum number of people are employed locally.

Henceforth, all mega projects will have to hire a specific number of people from Haryana. In Gujarat, the law now proposes to make it mandatory for industrialists to employ 25 per cent of the workforce from the vicinity of the industrial unit, and the remaining 55 per cent from within the state, before considering job seekers from outside.
