[ZESTCaste] Cell warns schools against collecting fee from SC/STs

Cell warns schools against collecting fee from SC/STs
Mangalore, July 3, DHNS:

Civil Rights Enforcement Cell Superintendent of Police Sarvotham Pai
said that the Cell has issued notices to DDPIs in four districts to
take stringent action against those schools which take fee from SC/ST

Speaking at SC/ST grievances meeting at SP office here on Sunday, he
said the Cell has also written to Director of Medical Education on a
medical college which had charged Rs 75,000 fee from a Dalit student.
"Those belonging to SC community and have migrated to another state
can not enjoy the facilities meant for SCs in that state. Several
Tamilians who have settled down in Sullia taluk are enjoying the
schemes for SCs in Tamil Nadu," he added. Devappa Haidangoor of
Sullia said Markanja Gram Panchayat President, Secretary and other
staff who were responsible for the mispropriation of funds worth Rs 42
lakh between 2005 and 2010 should be arrested immediately. He said
Dalit organisations will hold a protest if the authorities fail to
arrest them before August 15. Saraswathi from Sullia alleged that
Dalits are not getting caste certificates in Sullia. The issue of
certificate at Nemmadi Kendra are delayed unnecessarily. Dalit leader
Shivappa Renkedaguthu urged the police to probe into the murder of a
Dalit leader Shivappa Bangera. He was murdered near his house in
Bantwal in 2003.
