Bogus caste certificates - DoP&T



Fake caste certificates have come to the notice of the Government

Some complaints of appointment on the basis of fake caste certificates have come to the notice of the Government. If it is established that a candidate secured employment on the basis of a fake certificate, he is removed from service.
Instructions have been issued that the caste status of a candidate claiming to belong to Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe or Other Backward Class should be verified at the time of initial appointment as well as at the time of every important upturn of employee’s career so that any person may not get appointment on the basis of fake certificate.
Information about fake caste certificates is not centrally maintained. This information was given by the Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office and Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Shri Prithviraj Chavan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
