Jobs and admissions secured on fake caste certificates not to be sustained: SC
A division bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India Jagdish Singh Khehar, and also comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, passed the order to this effect.
The apex court did not agree with the Bombay High Court ruling that if a person continued in a job procured on the basis of fake caste certificate for a long period could be allowed to remain in the service.
The apex court passed the order after hearing a batch of petitions, among one of them was the Government of Maharashtra, who had challenged the Bombay High Court order.
The Maharashtra Government had knocked the doors of the apex court challenging the Bombay High Court order. (UNI)
