The Punjab and Haryana High Court has struck down the controversial Haryana law mandating 75% reservation for residents of the state in private sector jobs, calling it unconstitutional. Under the law, also known as the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act, 2020, 75% of private-sector jobs with a monthly salary of less than Rs. 30,000 are reserved for local residents.
