Brahmin adopted by SCs can get quota job..

India’s battle for backwardness gets murkier.

In a new case, Punjab and Haryana High Court said:

Can a person avail the benefits of reservation under Scheduled Caste (SC) if he was born a Brahmin but was adopted and brought up by SC parents? In an order that will have wide-ranging ramifications, the Punjab and Haryana high court has held that such a person cannot be denied a government job under the reserved category.

The court has also clarified that the adoption would be considered valid even if the regular format has not been followed and customary law has been employed.
