Stop non-SC/ST/OBC persons from grabbing reserved jobs: Govt

New Delhi, Dec 21 (PTI) States have been directed to streamline the
system of verification of caste certificates to prevent non-SC/ST/OBC
persons securing jobs meant for the reserved category by producing
false certificate, Parliament was informed today. In its final action
taken statement on recommendations of Committee on the Welfare of
Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes tabled in both Houses of
Parliament, the Government said it has also issued instructions that
wherever it is found that a government servant had furnished false
information to secure job, he or she should be removed from service.
It said instructions have also been issued from time to time that
verification of caste status of candidates, claiming to belong to SC
or ST, should be done at every important up-turn of an employee's
career so that the benefit of reservation goes only to the rightful
claimant. "The Department of Personnel and Training has sent letters
to chief secretaries of all states and Union Territories requesting
them to streamline the system of verification of caste certificates so
that unscrupulous non-SC/ST/OBC persons are prevented from securing
jobs meant for SC/ST/OBCs by producing false certificate," it said.
The department has started receiving information about persons who
have faced actions for securing employment on the basis of false caste
certificate, the Government said. Narrating various steps taken to
ensure that vacancies reserved for SCs and STs are filled by the
candidates belonging to these categories only, it said, "a general ban
has been imposed on de-reservation of reserved vacancies in case of
direct recruitment." (MORE)
