concerned, the enquiry was conducted by the then Commissioner
of Welfare. It is not necessary to issue another show case notice
before cancelling the Caste Certificate of Sri N.Chandrasekhara
Lingam. It was not necesssry to supply a copy of the report of the
Enquiry Officer to the petitioner as it was available for his perusal
at any time and it was open for him to file any objection.
5. In reply to paras 7 and 8 of the Petitioner's Affidavit it is sub-
mitted that the cancellation done on what basis is not known to
this respondent. It is incorrect to say that it is based on the second
respondent's Memo only.
6. In reply to para 9 of the Petitioner's Affidavit it is submitted
that the Government took action on the report of the Commis-
sioner of Welfare to cancel the certificate of Sri N.Chandrasekhara
Lingam. The G.O.cancelling the certificate is a detailed order and
is itself evidence that the matter had been examined in depth by
the State Government before the decision was taken. The ques-
tion of issuing a further Show Cause Notice to Sri N.Chandra
sekhara Lingam did not arise since a detailed enqiury giving suf-
ficient opportunity to the individual had alreeady been conducted.
7. For the reasons stated above the Memo No.543/J2/84-1
Social Welfare (J2) Department dated 3-4-1984 is quite legal and
it is according to the Presidential Order as to avoid underserving
persons who do not belong to Beda Jangam Community to claim
the benefits intended for scheduled castes. As such the Hon'ble
Court may be pleased to dismiss the Writ Petition with costs.
