The Supreme Court on Thursday held that the jobs and admissions secured on fake caste certificates in reserved categories can not be sustained if they were found to be guilty subsequently. There can be no leniency or consideration of years of service if anyone has used a fake caste certificate to get admission or a job.

The apex court judgment reversed the verdict of the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court which had held that if a person is in service for a long time and later it surfaces that he had got it on the basis of bogus caste certificate, then he can be allowed to continue in the service, said Maharashtra government counsel Nishant Katnewswarkar.

The Supreme Court has ordered strong deterrence against the misuse of caste certificates and observed that if the same if forged, the person would lose all benefits.

The Centre also directed all the central government departments to gather details about any such appointments on the basis of fake caste certificate from numerous organisations.

Jitendra Singh, Minister of state, had said in a written reply to Lok Sabha that 1,832 appointments based on fake cast certificate have been secured. Of these cases, 276 resulted in suspension or removal, 521 were entangled in litigations, and disciplinary proceedings were pending in the remaining 1,035 cases, he said. As many as 157 such cases were in State Bank of India, 135 in Central Bank of India, 112 in the Indian Overseas Bank, 103 in Syndicate Bank, and 41 each in New India Assurance and United India Assurance.
