6.3.1982 issued by the 2nd respondent herein treating me as be-
longing to scheduld caste. Based on the said proceedings, the
2nd respondent also issued proceedings in Memo No.B/20 dated
8.5.1984 which was received by me on 10.5.1984 stating that

to the same only, although the said directions are not binding on
respondents 1 and 2, have cancelled the proceedings No.B.755
dated 6.3.1982 issued in my favour declaring me as belonging to
scheduled caste. They may now initiate proceedings to prosecute
me also which is totally un-justified and unwarranted.

10.    i submit that in the circumstances stated above, I have no
other effective or alternative remedy than to invoke the extraordi-
nary jurisdiction of this Hon'ble Court under Article 226 of the Con-
