OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Hon,ble Supreme Court Judgment dated 15.09.2017 in the SLP(C)
No. 9574 of 2013 filed by All India Adiwasi Employees Federation
against judgment dated 20.12.2012 of Hon’ble High Court of Bombay,
Nagpur Bench – Appointment of candidates belonging to Halba Koshti/
Halbi Koshti/ Koshti, etc. castes against vacancies reserved for the
Scheduled Tribes – regarding.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s Office Memorandum
No. 36011/2/2010-Estt.(Res.) dated 10.08.2010 wherein it was, inter-alia,
stated that the persons belonging to the ‘Halba Koshti/ Koshti’ caste who
got appointment against vacancies reserved for the Scheduled Tribes on the
basis of Scheduled Tribe certificates, issued to them by the competent
authority, under the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 (as
amended from time to time) relating to the State of Maharahtra and whose
appointments had become final on or before 28.11.2000, shall not be
affected. However, they shall not get any benefit of reservation after
28.11.2000. 
2. The aforesaid OM dated 1.08.2010 was challenged in the Writ Petition No.
5287/2011 alongwith Writ Petition No. 4283/2010, filed by All India Adiwasi
Employees Federation in Hon,ble High Court of Judicature at Bombay, Nagpur
Bench, wherein it was inter-alia, prayed that the OM dated 10.08.2010 be
quashed and set aside by holding it to be illegal. The Hon,ble High Court
rejected the aforesaid petition vide order dated 20.12.2012 observing that

the impugned OM squarely makes the law laid down by the Apex Court
applicable to all such appointment of the Halba/Koshti, which have
become final on or before 28th November, 2000. The Hon,ble
Court also held that rather than finding the said office memorandum to
be unconstitutional or illegal; it is in consonance with the laws laid
down in the judgment of the Apex Court.

Against this order of the Hon,ble High Court of Bombay, the All India
Adiwasi Employees Federation filed an SLP(C) No. 9574 of 2013.
