The petitioner claims to be a member of the Sri

Pandarachetty Community, which according to the petitioner is a

socially and educationally backward class entitled to reservation

in the matter of admission to Medical and Engineering Courses

in Kerala State. However, Sri Pandarachetty Community is not

included in the list of SEBCs in the prospectus issued by the

Government for admission to professional colleges in Kerala this

year. Petitioner’s contention is that other sub classes of the

Chetty Community are included in the list of SEBCs and therefore

the non-inclusion of Sri Pandarachetty Community in the list of

SEBCs in the prospectus is arbitrary, unreasonable and

unsustainable. Petitioner therefore seeks the following relief:

i) To issue a writ of mandamus or any other
appropriate writ, direction or order commanding 2nd and
4th respondents to include the community “Sri
Pandarachetty” in the category of Socially and
Educationally Backward Classes in the prospectus for
admission to the Professional Degree Courses for the
year 2008 and to grant benefit of reservation to the
petitioner.

W.P.(C).No. 17514 OF 2008 2

2. Admittedly, the prospectus was issued in January, this

year in which Sri Pandarachetty Community was not included in

the list of SEBCs. Petitioner applied pursuant to that prospectus.

At that time, he did not raise any objections, although he claims

to have filed representations. Whatever that be, the petitioner is

approaching this court at the last minute when admissions are

going to be finalised. I am not inclined to entertain this writ

petition at this last moment, which if done, it would upset the

entire admission process.

Therefore I am not inclined to entertain this writ petition

and accordingly the same is dismissed.

S.SIRI JAGAN, JUDGE
