Bhubneswar: The Group of Ministers (GoM) in Odisha gave the nod to the
Orissa SC, ST & OBC (Regulation of Issuance and Verification) of Caste
Certificates Bill-2011.

The GoM finally arrived on a consensus after many deliberations.
Earlier, the bill was stalled after most of the Ministers opposed to
the provision of punishment in the bill.

The bill will be placed before the Cabinet. Once it is approved, it
will be introduced in the assembly.

The bill seeks strong punishment for MLAs, Tehsildar and other
officials that issue fake caste certificates to the people bypassing
the law.
