The father of the complainant since belonged to Adidravida community, sought exemption, whereas the complainant sought for change of allotment of house. On the basis of the assurance given, deposit was made, but the opposite party neither accepted the requisition for change of house, nor given the concession, though he belongs to scheduled community.
