Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), the apex body representing India’s auto component manufacturing industry, today has once again requested the Haryana State Government to reconsider reservation of employment for locals in private enterprises.

The Haryana assembly, on November 05, 2020, had passed the ‘Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill’ that mandates 75 percent reservation of factory and other blue-collar jobs in the private sector for locals.

Stressing on the need for reconsidering such a provision, Deepak Jain, President ACMA said, “ The Indian auto and auto component industry is a global one, our production not only caters to the domestic demand, but also to international markets. The Indian component industry today exports more twenty-five percent of its production, with US and Europe being our leading markets. Our industry requires skilled workforce to produce high quality products that are globally competitive. Hiring in our sector is done on the basis of talent and skills needed by the industry rather than on domicile of the candidates.”

“Such a move would not only adversely impact the ‘ease of doing business’ in the state, but also be detrimental to Haryana’s image of an industry friendly state and in attracting future investments.”, added Jain.
