  • The Karnataka government is planning to introduce 100% reservation to Kannadigas in blue-collar jobs in private sector industries across the state.
  • The state labour department has released the draft amendments to the Karnataka Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Rules of 1961 to this end.
  • Sources said that the government has already drafted the new move and it will be placed in the Assembly after going through the legality of the amendment.
  • The objections raised in the amendment will also be taken up in the assembly.
  • Karnataka Labour Minister Santosh Lad said that the amendment will ensure job opportunities to the local people.
  • He also said that the industry houses gets a lot of concession from the government, be it land cost, tax rebate etc and therefore they also need to encourage the local talent.
  • Employers’ attitude needs to be changed. We will place it before the cabinet and I am hopeful that there will be no roadblock.”
  • The department also provided 5% reservation for a disabled person who is also a Kannadiga. The IT-BT (information technology-biotechnology) vertical has been exempted as they are not covered under the Karnataka Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Rules of 1961 for a period of five years from 2014.
  • If industries do not follow these new guidelines, the government will cancel all concessions given to them.
  • The amendments will be implemented once the law department gives its approval the second time.
  • The move is not just for manufacturing sector but also for IT and Biotech sector.
  • An industry can hire an outsider if there is not Kannadiga available for the job.
  • A Kannadiga according to the new draft is someone who is born in Karnataka or lived in the state for not less than 15 years and knows to read, write, speak and understand Kannada.
  • Sources in the labour department said the government did not want to hamper the “bread and butter” of the state GDP with the reservation policy . “We did not want to invite a problem with the powerful IT-BT lobby at this point in time. Let’s first implement this reservation and then take on the IT-BT vertical later,” a department official said.
