Bangalore: Karnataka Government today decided to amend the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes Reservation of Appointments Act making issuance of fake caste certificates a cognisable offence.
A bill to amend the act would be introduced in the next legislature session, Minister for Social Welfare A Narayanaswamy told reporters here. Those officials who were found guilty of issuing fake caste certificates would attract six months imprisonment and Rs 50, fine or both in the amended act to curb the practices of "mechanically" issuing caste certificates and validity certifificates without proper verification.
Those who obtain such certificates would also attract similar punishment, besides cancellation of admissions and appointments secured by them, he said. The government decided to effect amendments to the act following complaints that members of some backward classes obtained caste certificates to get reservation benefits in employment.

This story is from May 4, A seat continuously held by one Vokkaliga family for over three decades, Hosakote was the fiefdom of cousins BN Bachegowda and N Chikkegowda. The duo held the seat alternately between and That the seat rested with a Vokkaliga family despite the constituency being dominated by Kurubas was a reflection of how state politics in the region panned out.
Within years, Siddaramaiah's ties with Deve Gowda turned sour and he launched his Ahinda campaign, breaking the Kuruba-Vokkaliga unity. Later, with the passing away of Chikkegowda, Bachegowda joined BJP to regain the seat inbut political observers said that his victory was largely because of the sympathy wave the saffron party rode on during that election.
InNagaraj, who is from Siddaramaiah's camp in Congress, defeated Bachegowda again. But the incumbent, also from the same community, will make this a difficult task. I have an appeal here because of our party and also because I am young and educated. On the contrary, the incumbent has a poor image and suffers anti-incumbency," says Sharath, a year-old engineer. Nagaraj, on the other hand, argues that he has retuned his strategies to consolidate the Kuruba votes, besides the minority votes.
Also, he feels that his work in the past five years will help him retain the seat. Our main target is to defeat Nagaraj and we think we are on the right track so far," says Krishnamurthy. Political observers say BJP has been doing groundwork in the constituency with even its national president Amit Shah having done his first roadshow in the state there.

For much of the period of British rule in the Indian subcontinentthey were known as the Depressed Classes. Ambedkar —the economist, reformer, member of the Constitution assembly of India, and Dalit leader during the independence struggle, himself a Dalit.
In Septemberthe government "issued an advisory to all private satellite channels asking them to 'refrain' from using the nomenclature 'Dalit'", though "rights groups and intellectuals have come out against any shift from 'Dalit' in popular usage". The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes comprise about Since the independence of India, the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes were given Reservation statusguaranteeing political representation. The evolution of low castes to modern-day Scheduled Castes is complex.
The caste system as a stratification of classes in India originated about 2, years ago, and has been influenced by dynasties and ruling elites including the Mughal Empire and the British Raj.
Since the s these communities were loosely referred to as Depressed Classes, with the Schedule Caste and Scheduled Tribes. The early 20th century saw a flurry of activity in the British authorities assessing the feasibility of responsible self-government for India. A highly contested issue in the proposed reforms was the reservation of seats for representation of the Depressed Classes in provincial and central legislatures.
InParliament passed the Government of India Actdesigned to give Indian provinces greater self-rule and set up a national federal structure. The reservation of seats for the Depressed Classes was incorporated into the act, which came into force in The Act introduced the term "Scheduled Castes", defining the group as "such castes, parts of groups within castes, which appear to His Majesty in Council to correspond to the classes of persons formerly known as the 'Depressed Classes', as His Majesty in Council may prefer".
After independence the Constituent Assembly continued the prevailing definition of Scheduled Castes and Tribes, giving via articles and the president of India and governors of the states a mandate to compile a full listing of castes and tribes with the power to edit it later, as required. The complete list of castes and tribes was made via two orders: The Constitution Scheduled Castes Order,  and The Constitution Scheduled Tribes Order, respectively.
Furthermore, independent India's quest for inclusivity was incident through the appointment of B. Ambedkar as the chair of the drafting committee for the Constitution.

From Bangalore.Singh did to national politics by exploiting the Mandal commission report and laying the ground for a caste-based polity?
The seeds for this change have already been sown with the Kurubas who recently met at Dharwad, passing a resolution to give them the ST tag. Mr Siddarmaiah had announced in the winter session at Belagavi that he would bring in a legislation to raise the ceiling on reservation from the present 50 per cent to 70 per cent.
Concurrently, he intends to bring in internal reservation for communities within the SC, ST and OBC blocs to give representation to communities which have not got representation in government jobs or in the political space yet.
Sources in the Congress said that his plan to raise the reservation ceiling from 50 per cent to 70 per cent is not altruistic as it seems. Revanna a Kuruba leader and a trusted lieutenant of the Chief Minister, sees nothing wrong in this.
Madiwalavas washermen for instance are in the ST bloc in 23 states but here in Karnataka, they are categorised as OBC. So, the social hierarchy is not static. Kurubas in the hinterland have the traits of nomadic communities which have been studied and ascertained by Kulashastra Study Centre. So what's wrong in giving them the Scheduled Tribes tag?

Concurrently, Mr Siddaramaiah will implement the A. Sadashiva Commission report on internal reservation. While speaking at the Madiga one of the untouchable SC communities convention earlier this month, he had promised to implement the report and had even asked social welfare minister, H. Anjaneya to bring up the subject at the next cabinet meeting. Mr Siddaramaiah is pushing for internal reservation in spite of stiff opposition from many Congress leaders including party leader in the Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge.
