Law panel’s report on death penalty reaches Home Ministry for final call 23 Sep, In respect of Arundhatiya, a satellite community of the Madiga, it is observed that this community do not accept food and water from the Mala, Dakkala, Pichchiguntala etc.

It shows the Mala population as The Commission’s effort to justicw favour the Madigas by quoting the speeches of the Dr. But, in fact the resolution was only recommending to Government of India to take up the matter in the Parliament in the light of the Supreme Court judgment.

It is not clear and it is very ambiguous and bereft of necessary details. The probe panel has requested the members of public to provide any information about the shocking incident gangrape of a young woman here.

Which was misread and misconstrued probably to suit its desire. But, the Commission’s approach from inception appears that it had taken up the responsibility to categorise the SCs without proper application of mind and with a prejudice influenced by the political clout at the behest of the Hon’ble Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment and the Government of Andhra Pradesh which is espousing the cause of MRPS.

Government Two government appointees in the law panel — then ex-offic Thus, the effort of the Commission to say that Scheduled Castes in Andhra Pradesh are heterogeneous is unconstitutional and unsustainable.

Justice Usha Mehra Commission Submitted its Report to the Union Government of India

The Commissions report that in educational programmes and government schemes and in employment, Malas and allied communities enjoyed more benefits is also factually incorrect. The characteristics and the salient features of the schedule castes are same though the names of caste and sub-caste may vary. The very appointment of Justice Usha Mehra Commission to study sub-classification issue in Andhra Pradesh alone is discriminatory and illegal. There will be no need for any complaint if these schemes are implemented for the individual benefit and for the area developement as contemplated.

Chinnaiah’s case wherein it was categorically said and held that the Parliament is only having a limited power of making exclusion or inclusion in the list and there is no power either to sub-divide or sub-classify or sub-group these castes and that the castes mentioned in the list to be members of one group for the purpose of the constitution and this group could not be sub-divided for any purpose.


Honestely Speaking, Justice Usha Mehra commission report is fallacious, beyond the scope of the reference,irrelevant, misleading commision defective based on insufficient data commisdion inadequate samples and erroneous conclusions drawn based on the mebra representations presented by the MRPS deliberately to prove the Commission’s predetermined intention to sub-classify the Scheduled castes, which cannot be relied upon and deserves to eeport ignored, and rejected in the larger interests of the scheduled castes and in the national intrests as a whole.

ET EnergyWorld A one stop platform that caters to the pulse of the pulsating energy. Thus, quoting Indrashaney’s case for categorization of SCs is untenable.

There justicf no reservations provided for the posts of High Courts Judges and Supreme Court Judges and there are also no reservations for the post of Ministers and Cabinet Ministers.

It is admitted in the Commission report that Malas are also called as Adi-andhras. But, the Commission in its over anxiety and over enthusiasm tried to project the figures furnished by the MRPS without proper verification and without application of mind.

Justice Usha Mehra Commission Report. Hence, the conclusions drawn by the Commission are inaccurate and based on irrelevant and extraneous consideratons. The observations of the Commission relating to Scheduled Caste in Andhra Pradesh are not correct and made with an ulterior motive. The Commission also committed error in selecting a few institutions for sample study and a limited number of Government departments and agencies identified and selected by the Government which is out and out supporting the cause of MRPS.

Law Commission recommended by a majority “swift” abolition of death penalty except in terror-related cases, noting it does not serve the penological goal of deterrence any more than life imprisonment.

The Scheduled Castes classification is not a definite matter of public importance for appointment of a Commission under the Commissions of Inquiry Act The Commission’s report to appoint another judicial commission to be headed by a sitting or a retired High Court Judge to collect data regarding representations of various castes of the SCs in the service of the State as well as in Educational Institutions is highly impracticable and is undersirable.

Thus, studying the status of SCs for division in Andhra Pradesh is thus violative of equality enshrined in the Constitution and discriminatory.


Muniswamy pillai is out of context and the Commission ignored the very fact that the test for inclusion in the list of SCs is extreme social, educational and economic backwardness arising out of traditional practice of untouchability. It is a fact that there are still lakhs of SCs children who are not admitted to schools in spite of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan Scheme and there is inadequate enrollment of ,ehra at all the levels and when the scholarships are not fully utilized by any District under any scheme, and the dropout rate of Scheduled Castes students, which is alarming.


In all other areas, Madigas are the dominant caste. But, as per decennial growth rate, it should be The opportunities depend upon factors like jistice, availability of schools, literacy and regional imbalances. Commision observations of the Commission that Madiga is not numerically dominant caste is also fallacious for the reasons that the Commission showed their population as Meera Kumar, the Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment mdhra belong to the group of Madiga caste without any concern for the remaining scheduled castes in the country.

For Instance, it is observed that for a Mala, a Madiga is an untouchable. The Home Ministry is likely to reject Law Commission’s recommendation for abolition of death penalty, maintaining that time justoce not ripe yet to remove it.


The Commission also failed to note and want only ignored the fact that B. The issue of Scheduled Castes is a National issue and the reservations are intended for constitutional purpose. The Xommission failed to note and appreciate that if one geport is little advantaged because of their early schooling or on account of the missionaries starting schools in Coastal areas, it should not be a ground to divide the whole SCs.

CSR Compendium Touching lives of many. Hence there is no need or justification to divide the SCs which is not in the interests of the Country as a whole.

Justice Usha Mehra Commission Submitted its Report to the Union Government of India

Mehra Commission recommendations placed before Cabinet Sources said the Home Ministry has accepted several of the recommendations of the panel and these were placed before the Cabinet for final approval. Hence the report is defective. The grouping of castes particularly with reference to Malas and Adi-andhras is incorrect.

The report of the Justice Usha Mehra Commission is perfunctory and incomplete as there was no basis on which particularly with reference to each caste were obtained and its authunticity is doubtful as there was no mention in the census format about sub-caste details. Home Ministry against abolition of death penalty 4 Oct, Thus, the recommendation of the Commission for categorization is contradictory and against its own findings.
