Several CG staff from TN denied pension & promotions as pending cast verification


Several Central government employees belonging to Scheduled Tribes are having their retirement benefits postponed because of the pending the Tamil Nadu government's verification of their caste certificates. For the same reason, scores of employees' promotions have been kept on hold.

According to sources, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, has written to the Chief Secretaries of all States/Union Territories, stating that pensionary benefits of employees working in various offices and organisations under the Central Government in Tamil Nadu have been withheld because caste verification from the State Government was pending.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SC & ST) took a serious view of this and directed the DoPT to issue necessary guidelines to all concerned for timely verification of the certificates.

Referring to the detailed guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court for effective verification so that no person on the basis of a fake certificate may secure employment wrongfully in the Government, the DoPT pointed out that the responsibility of the issue and verification of caste certificate lies with the State/Union Territory Government concerned.
