(1.) None appears for the petitioner. Heard Shri Maldhure, the learned Assistant Government Pleader appearing for the respondents.
(2.) The petitioner was selected for the post of Animal Husbandry Development Officer under the State Government through Maharashtra Public
Service Commission. However, he was not granted an order of appointment, as the caste validity
certificate was not produced. The claim of the petitioner was referred to the said Committee for
verification and by an order dated 15.03.2000, the Committee has invalidated the caste claim of the
petitioner and the caste certificate dated 19.08.1988 has been cancelled.
(3.) The claim of the petitioner was for Halba - Scheduled Tribe category. From the order impugned, it seems that the petitioner has avoided to submit original caste certificate and he has also failed to
cooperate with the Committee for disposal of the matter in accordance with the procedure
prescribed. The Committee has also recorded the finding, holding that the caste of the father of the
petitioner is shown as 'Koshti'. However, in the petition, it is the averment that the documents prior
to 1950 are available with the petitioner showing the caste as 'Halba - Scheduled Tribe'.;
