‘Moger should be a Scheduled Caste in all districts'

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday declared that the status of Moger caste as a Scheduled Caste community should be applicable to the entire State and not only to those residing in Dakshina Kannada district and Kollegal taluk of Chamarajnagar district.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice J.S. Khehar and Justice H.G. Ramesh passed the order in a public interest litigation petition filed by Uttara Kannada Zilla Moger Sangha questioning the action of the authorities in not extending the status in other districts of the State.

The difficulty faced by members of Moger caste to procure Scheduled Caste certificate, merely on the premise that it is not included in the Scheduled Caste list for the entire State would be a matter of concern, the court observed.

The Bench also directed the Government to issue circular to all officials concerned who are dealing with the grant of Scheduled Caste certificate to ensure that the order of the High Court is complied with.
