BENGALURU: A protest will be held on March 4, 2017 by Kannadiga Udyoga Vedika in demand for domicile reservations for Kannadiga’s.
Domicile reservation is basically local reservations for jobs. Most of the HR’s in private sectors are Bengalis and they take in only North Indian people. Very few HR’s are Kannadigas.
Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) notifications have not given any preference to Kannadiga’s and all the bank and railway officers are non- Kannadiga’s. Because of the IBPS procedures only 5 to 10% of Kannadiga’s are getting jobs in Karnataka. The situation is not the same in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as they have reservations.
