Quota issue: Govt. working on industrial policy

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 1: Faced with the industry's resistance to job reservation in the private sector, the government is expeditiously working on an ''inclusive'' Industrial Policy, aimed at handsomely rewarding companies setting up units in 60 districts, with more than 50 per cent SC/ST population.

''We have identified the districts which have over 50 per cent of their population from the SCs and STs. A host of liberal fiscal and other incentives will be given to the companies setting up units in these areas employing local people'', a top level source in the government told sources.
