States mandating reservation for residents in private companies: Inputs Sought

Recently Andhra Pradesh announced that state residents will have 75% reservation in all jobs including all private companies. Subsequently, MP announced a similar 70% reservation for locals in all jobs including private companies. Other states may follow this trend too for political mileage. We would like to seek your inputs on whether this is good, ok or a dangerous trend that will keep businesses and capital away from such states. Also, if you have additional inputs on the current Caste based Reservation or the newly proposed 10% Economic States based Reservation, kindly share the same as well.

For reference, below are the issues that some of you had outlined with how reservation works in India. We look forward to your inputs!

Reservation System:Key Issues
1.Caste based Reservations are the biggest enemy of meritocracy
2.Caste based reservation system leads to breeding of corruption
3.Beneficiaries under this system are taking advantage of it
4.It leads to undeserving people getting jobs, promotions, admissions in schools\/colleges, etc.
5.On the other hand, it leads to deserving people being left in a state of lurch
6.This also leads to brain drain and capable people looking for jobs elsewhere
7.People with caste based reservations get an upper hand when it comes to jobs
8.Selection criterion for them are set at low standards
9.People get good government jobs through their quota but are not able to do justice to their work
10.Families who are financially pretty well off also use the quotas and try to rake in as much as possible
11.This reservation system propagates politics and causes many demonstrations leading to violence. more

Apart from this threat of local another new proposal from Karnataka politician has been to reserve jobs for Kannada speaking local only.
Where are we heading in70 it was Marathi manus in Bombay ,now Telengana, local non local, now Kannada speaking?Terrible feeling !
We find a mid way to assuage Local needs.
First survey local residents ,find suitability of qualification for the required job ,then take them on internship/trading/ probation and after six months either emploidpf suitable or send themback if they are not suitable.The rule must be made by industry and prior signature of candidate to agree to this stipulation taken.
Mostly caste based reservation in recruitment and promotion must be removed for the private job sector.This will give impetus for the industries.
Learning local language by employees working should be encouraged to avoid alienation of locals . more  
I already reiterated that 6/7 States are following JK AND HENCE Schedule 7 shall be Regulated for Strict compliance of Part III AND IV as guaranteed by Preamble of the Constitution. IT IS A MUST TO MAKE STATES BOUND TO CONSTITUTIONAL OBJECTIVES. more  
Reservation means an inefficient person is getting a job over and above a more competent and merited person.This should be totally stopped,otherwise a time will come when country will be ruled/controlled by most inefficient people and this may lead to brain drain as brilliant people may migrate to other countries. more  
3 decades back SC UPHELD that a more qualified person can best deliver the output. MANY OBJECT ORIENTED ORDERS/ JUDGMENTS since 1963 were set aside by Politically empowered Legislators.
Constitution must be amended to Authorize JUDICIARY AS INDEPENDENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROMPT IMPLEMENTATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES. more  
This is extremely dangerous. Besides, efficiency & employer freedom, worst damage will be more & more divide amongst us INDIANS on linguistic or regional lines in addition to various fault lines already existing. more  
If this is a new political trend, imagine the Global ramifications if each international country starts this type of reservations, what will happen to the cross country working citizens..
This ominous, dangerous trend must be nipped in the bud itself.... more  
the reservation is a curse to the nation. the cancer infected thoughts of people are serious damaging factor for social, economic and strategic heath of the nation. the people or agencies infected with this contagious disease should be socially boycott. more
