Quota Raj: Maharashtra reserves 80 pc jobs for locals
Whoever has stayed for over 15 years in the state is considered as local.

Mumbai: In an apparent bid to hijack MNS chief Raj Thackeray's agenda, Maharashtra government on Monday decided to reserve 80 per cent of jobs to locals in state industries.

"Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh had been following up the issue for a long time. The Industries, Energy and Labour department took a decision for setting aside 80 percent jobs to the locals", an official statement said.

Anyone who has been residing for over 15 years in the state would be considered as local, the statement said.

The Government has also decided to set up a committee at state and district level to ensure implementation of the decision, it said.

The panel would meet at least three times a year and would review status of the decision. It would also suggest measures to provide maximum jobs to locals.

A procedure has been fixed to ensure that the officer making the recruitment, should be one knowing Marathi language, the statement said.

The decision provides for reservation of 50 per cent in supervisory category.
