New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday said that government jobs or admissions secured under reserved category by using fake caste certificates cannot be held valid or sustained in the eyes of the law.

A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud did not concur with the findings of the Bombay High Court. The court said that if a person continues in service for a longer time and the certificate is found to be fake at a later stage then, he or she may be allowed to continue in the service, reported PTI.

The verdict came on a batch of petitions including the one filed by the Maharashtra government against the Bombay High Court judgement.

The Supreme Court, however, said that the findings of its verdict would not be made applicable with retrospective effect and would be applied now onwards.
