Fake Caste Certificates By 30% Candidates For Govt Jobs: CBI

17th April 2006

A CBI investigation has found 30 per cent people belonging to Scheduled Caste and scheduled Tribes have produced fake caste certificates to acquire government jobs.

This was stated by K N Singh, Chief of National Scheduled Caste/Tribe Commission, today at the inauguration of the three-day national workshop on reservation policy being held here.

The CBI conducted the investigation on the orders of Supreme Court. Singh said action would be taken against the defaulting government officers and employees.

He said Social Welfare Ministry will soon bring a bill to stop such a practice and all states have been requested to send in their suggestions.
