The Punjab and Haryana High Court today made it clear that a child, even with a Scheduled Caste certificate, was not entitled to reservation, if one of the parents was now a member of the “forward class” by the virtue of marriage.

A Division Bench of the High Court also expressed anguish over the fact that even after 60 years of Independence, people were finding ways and means to claim the benefit of reservation. The ruling came on a petition filed by Ms Harpreet Kaur against the State of Punjab and others. The petitioner had sought admission on the basis of PMET-2008 in Bachelor of Dental Science course against seats meant for the Scheduled Caste category.

The Bench noted: “The case of the petitioner is that her mother belongs to the Schedule Caste and as per the Government of Punjab policy instructions dated 21, May 1977, regarding caste status of offspring of inter-caste marriage, such as the petitioner, the scheduled caste certificate was rightly issued by the tehsildar. But the petitioner was not admitted against the seat meant for the Scheduled Caste on an objection raised by the welfare department to the effect that the petitioner cannot be granted the benefit.” n SNS
