IN AN apparent drive to spot cases of appointments made on the basis of fake caste certificates, the Indian government has asked all its ministries and departments, public sector undertakings (PSUs) including banks to pull their resources to find out such cases and submit a report by March 31, 2010.
Various ministries will now have to collect information from all organisations under their administrative control about the cases where the candidates got appointment against vacancies reserved for SCs, STs and OBCs through fake caste certificates. And those found guilty will be terminated from service.
“............DoPT should obtain information from all ministries, departments, PSUs, banks, autonomous bodies and states and UTs in regard to cases of false caste certificates
regularly with a view to monitoring their progress and disposal, so that necessary plan of action could be taken to tackle the problem for good”, the Parliamentary Committee on
the welfare of SC and ST recommended.

Mr Mittal who recently lost an opportunity to get a promotion as Northern Railway secretary, is now told to go on leave until further orders. His crime? His closeness to former railway minister Lalu Prasad has cost him dear!
