Haryana domicile quota: SC sets aside Punjab & Haryana HC order

17/02/2022 at 12:04 PM

New Delhi, Feb 17: The Supreme Court on Thursday set aside a Punjab and Haryana High Court order staying the Haryana government’s law on providing 75 per cent reservation in private sector jobs to local candidates.

A bench of justices L Nageswara Rao and Pamidighantam Sri Narasimha also directed the Haryana government not to take coercive action against employers.

The court asked the high court to decide on the issue within a month.

“We do not intend to deal with merits of matter as we propose to request the high court to decide expeditiously and not later than four weeks. Parties are directed not to seek adjournment and be present before court for fixing the schedule for hearing,” the bench said.

“In the meanwhile, Haryana is directed not to take coercive action against employers. The impugned order passed by the high court is set aside as the high court has not given sufficient reasons for staying the legislation,” the bench further said.
