Honnavar : Directorate of Civil Rights Enforcement’s Superintendent of Police Vedamurthy has stated that government has stopped issuing SC certificate and other facilities to Moger community for the time being as there was no clear order from departments concerned over considering Moger community as Schedule Caste.

Addressing the meeting of grievances related to implementation of SCs/STs programmes here on Friday, he said, National SCs/STs Commission had approached Supreme Court in connection with High Court order that said Mogers belonged to SC community. As SC had asked the aggrieved parties to set right the case in the State courts, process for setting it right was on.

Social Welfare Department was releasing 25% of compensation amount immediately when an atrocity case was filed. Fifty per cent is given during hearing and remaining released after final verdict was pronounced. He said, victims in caste abuse case would get Rs 1 lakh compensation. It would be Rs 8.25 lakh compensation in case of murder and Rs 5 lakh in case of rape.

He said, officials from different departments were instructed to create awareness among SCs/STs about reservation facilities and other benefits from the government.
