July 06, 2017: Fake Caste Certificates that up until now were used to secure reserved seats in Jobs and Education are not going to be valid after a recent ruling by the Supreme Court of India.

The Supreme Court did not agree with the Bombay High Court who delivered the verdict that persons who have served for a long period of time but with fake caste certificates may be allowed to continue the service, mentioned PTI.

Although possessing no retrospective effects, the decision will be applicable from now onwards. The verdict came as a number of petitions to the Supreme Court were flooding in. Even Maharashtra government filed a petition against the verdict of the Bombay High Court.

Only last month the Central government announced its decision to dismiss any employee who had secured a job through fake certificates. Subsequently, it had asked all its departments to collect information from various organizations and find discrepancies.

It was also revealed that 1,296 cases of employment through fake certificates were registered under Department of Financial Services.
