Malegaon: A year after creating the history that brought him the ire of his sub-ordinates for choosing a novel way to curb corruption rampant while issuing the caste and other such certificates, SDM Malegaon March 18 repeated it with renewed vigor and cleared 273 certificates for as many students in one go.


"We introduced this idea in 2010 when we had similarly issued the caste, domicile and nationality certificates to 243 students of JAT Girls' High School & Jr College. This year we have increased our tally and would be giving certificates to 273 students", SDM Malegaon Ajay More said to at the camp he organised with a local NGO today morning at JAT Girls' High School & Jr College in Malegaon.


More cleared the application forms in one go checking and scrutiny for which were done earlier by his staff.


The idea to issue these certificates right at the school was brewing in my mind ever since I had joined Malegaon as SDM in 2008. When Citizens for Development and Peace (CDP) approached me in 2010 for the purpose, we simplified the procedure further by translating it in the local language and then experienced it at JAT Girls' High School. The response was overwhelming and hence we decided to repeat it this year again", he said.


The idea Ajay More used to curb corruption and allay the general perception that government officials are normally corrupt, was providing the students with the Urdu translation of the application forms for Caste, Domicile and Nationality certificates, get them filled with the help of teachers and distribute them right at their school.


“Our ultimate aim is to make access to the government amenities and services easier for the people. Since Malegaon has a vast population of Muslims and the Urdu language is widely understood and spoken in the town, we decided to insert Urdu translation in the prescribed application form for caste and domicile certificates. It immensely helped the students and their parents and they with little help were able to fill the forms themselves”, SDM Ajay More said.


The Caste certificate is a compulsory document to avail the government declared benefits for the backward classes whereas Domicile and Nationality certificates are proofs that a student is a resident of Maharashtra and an Indian citizen. These documents are required at the time of college admissions after SSC and HSC.
