New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Thursday quashed the Haryana and Punjab High Court’s order granting interim stay on a law providing for 75% reservation in private sector jobs to residents of Haryana. A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and PS Narasimha also directed the Haryana government not to take coercive action against the employers. “We do not intend to deal with the matter on its merits and request the High Court to take a decision expeditiously and within four weeks,” the bench said. The parties are directed not to request an adjournment and remain present before the court to fix the date of hearing. In the meantime, Haryana is directed not to take coercive action against the employers, it said. The order of the High Court which has been challenged is hereby set aside as the court has not given sufficient reasons to stay the Bill. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appeared on behalf of Haryana Government. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had on February 3 put an interim stay on the Haryana government’s law granting 75 per cent reservation to residents of the state in private sector jobs. This decision was challenged by the Haryana government in the Supreme Court. The High Court had ordered an interim stay while hearing the petitions of various industry associations of Faridabad and several other institutions of Haryana including Gurugram.
