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 Manmohan Singh, but opposed any law to impose job quotas in the private sector.

CII president R Seshasayee, Assocham president Anil Agarwal, and J J 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 (on Wednesday). Details of this and interaction with prime minister will be disclosed tomorrow (on Friday)."
