Survey on the New Domicile Law
The survey revealed that the majority of businesses raised reservations about recruiting and emphasized that regulation would greatly raise the cost of enforcement. This will limit the industry’s freedom to hire staff at will. “There are a short-term effect and a medium-term impact,” said Ashish Aggarwal, Senior Director and Head of Policy Advocacy at Nasscom. The recruiting is presumably over for the current year and the effect may be reduced in the short term.
For a number of purposes, businesses seek new locations and overlapping jurisdictions. Haryana always attracted talent and companies claim the new law will decrease the competitiveness of the state. The move was not only illegal, as the Manas Fuloria, CEO of the Nagarro IT Company based in Gurugram says.
Nasscom President Vinod Sood for the Haryana area said that in some way the reservation was not a constructive move. By improving stability, many industries will like to attract local citizens, only if there are any. We need qualified personnel in this region, however, and a big gap exists,” said Sood, adding that the reserve would damage Gurugram’s reputation as an international center of industry, as leaders see retrograde movements. Others say that the government has to invest in competent local young people at the university and college levels to enforce such a quota.
Why firms are not happy with the New Domicile Law
Many start-ups in Gurugram have been unnerved by the development and according to a recent survey carried out by Nasscom they may consider moving operations to other countries. The same has also been indicated by employers like Quess and Xpheno.

However, the local work legislation is not met by many businesses.
The state government’s labor quota legislation would be expected to comply with all corporations. Such as companies, trusts, LLP companies, alliance firms, and anybody who employs ten or more people. The Haryana Government’s new local quota legislation can do more harm than good, in particular in Gurugram, which has been one of the country’s largest startup hubs in recent years. The quota shall apply 10 years after notification by the government. It shall apply.
In Gurugram, the latest local work quota is consider regressive, not only new-age start-ups but information technology firms, vehicle, and export companies. The legitimacy of the quota causes dispute by several State-based industrialists.

It needs to mention that a minimum of 10,000 rs may be charged to up to Rs 2 lakh by any private entity which is not compliant with the provisions of the legislation.

Companies are subject to a larger fine or prosecution if incorrect job documents has been produced. Ashish Aggarwal, Senior Director and Head of Policy Activism at Nasscom says that, businesses are now searching for new locations; and overlapping courts.
Industrialists Questions Feasibility of Haryana Job Quota Law
It is noticeable that Gurugram is headquarter for more than 300 Fortune 500 firms. Over the past two decades, several of these corporations have built a base in the region. Not just IT and ITeS corporations, they are also put in the show through a vast number of cars and auxiliary businesses. 73 firms participating in a study by Nasscom have expressed their concern about the implications of the regulation. The study shows 1,5 lakh workers in the State is blown away by the law.
The new law would affect nearly 1.5 lakhs current worker and extend to four lakh employees of IT/IteS; or say 37% of all the IT/ITeS. As this legislation covers new employees, “the effect will be serious in 1 to 2 years, given the high turnover rate for business”. Industry bosses said that most Indian states are now welcome to invest and Gurugram could be hit by the law on labor reservation. Ashish Aggarwal, Nasscom’s Chief Policy Officer, said, “This change contradicts a series of changes in the past year that have made remote operations simpler and start-ups more inspiring.”
What Companies Want
Some businesses also slammed the recent local quota legislation on jobs and urged the government to work on local young people’s training and skills. Several top managers from Gurugram industries expressed concerns about the possibility of further expanding the reach of existing reservations. They unanimously accept that the only way to provide the young people of the state work is by the provision of qualifications and adequate preparation.
Several experts clarified that the competition from Haryana from other countries which have now begun to draw industrial investment is enormous. CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee put forward his voice saying that at present such constraints could have been avoided by the Haryana administration.

However, the individual must register for a job under the law on a specified portal.
