n Memo dated 3-4-1984 and G.O.Ms.No.51 dated 20-3-1982 treat-
ng the applicant as a member of the scheduled caste. Shri
Bhaskara Rao has produced the record relating to the issue of
these orders, it is seen from the said record that the Director of
scheduled caste and scheduled tribes, Government of India had
addressed the first respondent stating that in view of the issue of
G.O.Ms.No.51 dated 20-3-1984 issued to Shri Chandrasekhara
Lingam, it would follow that a false certificate had been obtained
by the applicant herein and requested that the action may be
taken against the applicant.
It was as a consequence to this letter that the impugned order
dated 2-5-1984 and consequential order dated 8-5-1984 have
been issued. Since the orders relied upon by the applicant viz.,
orders of the Government of Andrha Pradesh have been set-
aside by the High Court and the Supreme Court, it would follow
that the impugned order dated 2-5-1984 is clearly illegal and with-
out any basis. Further, in the absence of a notice having been
g*ven to the aplicant before action was taken to deny the applicant
of the benefits claimed renders the impugned orders as perse ille-
gal. For these reasons, the application is allowed and the im-
pugned order No.ST.PF/LSG/RV/Ongole dated 2-5-1984 and the
consequential order No.8/20 dated 8-5-1984 are quashed and
set aside. There will be no order as to costs.
