Bombay high court sets aside Shinde's caste certificate
MUMBAI: In a major set back to Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, the Bombay high court on Thursday set aside a caste validity certificate issued to him five years ago.
The court said that the caste scrutiny committee had not passed a reasoned order as is mandatory under the law that governs the certification for scheduled caste, scheduled tribes and other backward categories. Shinde was the Maharashtra's first scheduled caste chief minister.
The HC sent Shinde's claim back to the caste scrutiny committee which will now decide his caste claim afresh. The court directed all parties, including Shinde, to appear before the scrutiny committee on Friday, March 28. The committee has to decide the claim in two months.
He shall be removed from Union Home Ministry Post.
LOL (LOL land)
Give Shinde and his langoti-yaar Uttam Cobrafraud a cavity search to figure out their true caste.
All rich people/All Income-Tax payers should be treated as GENERAL CATEGORY.

Why does the cream of cream need these caste certificates? Why not leave it for the needy and downtrodden?

It is the policy of corrupt and communal Congress to promote inefficient people,otherwise they become threat to Fake Gandhis.
Shouldn't Shinde be charged and arrested for filing false caste certificate ?. Shinde has lied about his caste and taken advantage and fighting from reserve constituencies all these years. He should be jailed and all the corrupt money he made after winning the elections should be confiscated.
As long as we have special privileges for SC every one would like to become a SC. In another 100 years India will have only SCs and the great Mahatma Gandhi will become happy that we have removed the caste system
Now Shitte will have to bribe the Caste scrutiny committee. But he cheated the caste members and the voters for 5 LONG YEARS and looted enough money from the treasury.
He was a chief minister of the state and now a home minister
Just imagine High Court not aooroving Caste certificate of our Home Minister who rose from Peon to the present position due to his cast. He must resign if he has some honour left.
Citizens urged to verify caste census data
PANAJI: The socio economic and caste census (SECC) data collected after a door-to-door survey in Goa, will now be kept for public scrutiny in village panchayats and municipalities from February 2.
Citizens are requested to check their data for corrections and the last date for receipt of claims and objections to the same is February 23.
Speaking at a press conference, urban development minister Francis D'Souza said that the entire population of Goa (12.88 lakh people) was covered under the project. The data collected included details like qualifications, caste, disability, chronic illness etc.
Verification of the data requires prudent checking of specific data like caste, source of income, etc. The corrections approved by the government will be incorporated to formulate the final socio economic and caste census data base in the ministry of rural development and national informatics centre.
"As the data base can be used by the government at a later date for identification of beneficiaries of government schemes, the public is required to verify the data and get the same corrected if necessary, within the specified time frame, D'Souza added.
