[ZESTCaste] Industry leaders meet PM on job reservation

Industry leaders meet PM on job reservation

Outlining the affirmative action that it was willing to take for
empowering the socially underprivileged, captains of Indian industry
have submitted a plan of action to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh
but opposed any law to impose job quotas in the private sector.

CII President R Seshasayee, Assocham president Anil Agarwal and JJ
Irani, who chaired a CII-appointed panel on job reservations in the
private sector, submitted the Irani Committee report that opposed
"curtailment of freedom of employers" in the matter of employment.

Asked about the response of the Prime Minister, Seshasayee said, "We
submitted the report yesterday. Details of this and interaction with
Prime Minister will be disclosed tomorrow."
