NASSCOM President for national debate on Reservation Policy
Bangalore, Apr 25 (UNI) NASSCOM President Kiran Karnik today called for a national debate on reservation of jobs in the private sector sought to be introduced by the Union government in Information Technology Industry.
Stating that nothing much have been achieved during last 60 years through Reservation, Mr Karnik in an informal talk with newsmen said that the government should take into confidence Industry and discuss the issue. There were many issues to be discussed before taking a final decision. The issues may include Primary Education, environment to be created, language and social aspects.
He said that NASCCOM was thinking of having discussion on the issue with the industry and approach the government.
Replying to a question, he said that ''it is not correct to say that IT industries have not done much and only objecting for introduction of the Reservation Policy. Industry has done a lot.
However, the issue needs to be discussed first and then think of introducing in a manner through which we can achieve overall development''.
Mr Karnik said ''we genuinely feel that something has to be done for disadvantaged people and there are many groups which have historically remained disadvantaged. But what was needed was that we should see that these groups were enabled to join the main stream and for this concrete steps need to be taken." MORE UNI MSP VK SB1445
