General Direction for Caste validity certificate in time
The State Government has constituted a Scrutiny Committee for verification of Caste Certificates issued by the Competent Authority. The office of the Scrutiny Committee is located at Konkan Bhavan, 6th Floor, Extension Building, Room No.71, New Bombay - 400 614. One has to carry the original OBC Caste Certificate and all supporting original documents which were submitted earlier while obtaining Caste Certificates from the Competent Authority.
The students who wish to apply for Medicine, Engineering, Architecture etc. under the OBC quota are required to attach the copy of the caste certificate at the time of admission to the said courses. However, at the time of selection to the said courses, one needs to submit validity certificate. It is therefore recommended that those students who are studying in F.Y.J.C or Std. XI ( Science ) should apply to the Scrutiny Committee well before 30th November for the relevant year.

OLD DECISION OF COURT.
IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT BOMBAY
ORDINARY ORIGINAL, CIVIL JURISDICTION
WRIT PETITION LODGING NO.1350 OF 2006
we have come across several cases where students are first timers for admission in the professional courses and their
parents are not aware that the caste/tribe Certificate has to be kept ready to be produced at the time of admission. The constitutional scheme of reservation meant for upliftment of backward section cannot be defeated by procedural or technical impediments. Effect has to be given to the
constitutional mandate so that those students who are
entitled to reservation get the benefit and are not
tripped by procedural requirements.
In these circumstances we think it appropriate that we issue some general direction as otherwise during this period, hundreds of petitions are filed by students who are denied admission or are threatened with cancellation of admission, because they are not in a position to produce the caste/tribe validity certificate in time. In the light of that.
the following order:-
1. The requirement of producing caste/tribe validity certificate at the time of admission or
within 12 weeks of admission is directory and not mandatory.
2. If the students have already applied for
caste/tribe certificate and the applications are
pending before the relevant committee, then the
institutions must grant provisional admission to such
students. The admissions will be subject to the
decision of the caste/tribe Scrutiny Committee.
Under no circumstances will any student be entitled
to claim equity to continue the studies if the
caste/tribe certificate is rejected or not validated.
3. Considering what we have stated in the
earlier part of the order, Rule 5 of the Information
Brochure for admission to Health Sciences Courses for
the academic year 2006-2007 is held to be directory.
4. The various Committees which have been
entrusted the responsibility of deciding the
caste/tribe validity, in so far as those applicants
who have applied for admission to professional
courses, to consider their cases on priority and
dispose them of not later than six months from the
date of the application.
5. The Chief Secretary of the State of
Maharashtara to consider these observations in this
order and to take necessary steps to give effect to
6. The Chief Secretary to the Government of
Maharashtra to ensure that this part of the order is
forwarded to the various Departments/Bodies entrusted
