#India – Dalits stripped of Dignity #Caste #discrimination


Frontline  

WITH the imposing Puthur hillock surrounded by lush green sugarcane fields offering a picturesque backdrop, Vadugapatti in Usilampatti block in Madurai district of Tamil Nadu gives the impression that all is well there. But the humiliation inflicted on a 11-year-old Dalit boy on June 3 and the abuses hurled subsequently at his widowed mother by a caste Hindu youth have unmasked the moral pretensions of the tiny village in the heartland of the Piramalai Kallars.

In a place where footwear is considered a status symbol rather than protective gear, a Piramalai Kallar youth, P. Nilamaalai, forced the Dalit boy, P. Suresh (name changed), to carry his sandals on his head as punishment. His crime: wearing footwear in the caste-Hindu area!

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) tooksuo motu notice of the case and held an inquiry in the village on June 11. D. Venkatesan, Director of the NCSC (Tamil Nadu and Puducherry), who was accompanied by A. Iniyan, investigator, confirmed that the incident had taken place. Dubbing it a “heinous crime against a juvenile”, he said that persons guilty of the crime would have to face “serious legal consequences”.

Following a complaint lodged by the victim’s mother, P. Nagammal, a brick kiln worker, the Usilampatti Town police registered a first information report (FIR) on June 6 and arrested Nilamaalai, his brother P. Agni and their father, A. Pathivuraja. The police have registered cases against them under sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.Even 10 days after the incident, Suresh found it difficult to come to terms with the humiliation he had undergone. Narrating his ordeal, he said it occurred when he and two other boys were returning from the Government Kallar High School where he was studying in Standard VI.

All the three boys belonged to the Dalit colony and had gone to the school to find out about the rescheduled date of reopening after the summer vacation. Nilamaalai waylaid them near a tamarind tree. After allowing the other two Dalit boys, who were barefoot, to leave, he upbraided Suresh for violating the ban on Dalits walking on the streets in the upper-caste area with footwear on. Reprimanding him for his mother’s “failure” to teach him the “etiquette” he had to follow, Nilamaalai forced the boy to put his footwear on his head and paraded him up to a platform used to stage cultural events.

According to Nagammal, Suresh stomached the insult and did not say anything about it to her or to his other relatives. However, sensing her son’s abnormal behaviour, she coaxed him a couple of days later into revealing his agonising experience. She took up the issue with Nilamalai’s brother Agni on June 5. But Nilamaalai not only justified his abominable action but also hurled abuses at her and allegedly threatened to eliminate her if she dared to inform the police. Contrary to his belief that the Dalit woman would grin and bear the dishonour, she lodged a complaint with the police. Nagammal said the local police wanted to settle the issue through a “compromise” and she had to approach Dalit activists to ensure that justice was done in the case.

K. Theivammal, coordinator of the Usilai Vattara Dalit Kootamaippu, an organisation working for the rights of the oppressed communities in Usilampatti block, said the police registered an FIR after much dilly-dallying. Though the police arrested Nilamaalai’s brother and father on June 7 on charges of protecting the accused, Nilamaalai was absconding until he was nabbed on June 9. Posters were put up throughout Usilampatti town and in several villages in the area demanding, among other things, the arrest of the main accused.

According to Superintendent of Police V. Balakrishnan, who visited the village close on the heels of reports on the incident, cases had been booked under Section 294(b) (singing, reciting or uttering any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place) and Section 506(1) (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3(1)(x) and 3(1)(xiv) of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. Section 3(1)(x) of the Act deals with intentional insult or intimidation with intent to humiliate a member of a Scheduled Caste or a Scheduled Tribe in any place within public view and Section 3(1)(xiv) pertains to offences such as denying a member of an S.C. or an S.T. any customary right of passage to a place of public resort or obstructing such member so as to prevent the person from using or having access to a place of public resort which other members of the public or any section thereof have a right to use or have access to.

 

 

 

In denial 

Caste Hindus, however, dismissed the incident as an “aberration” in the otherwise cordial relations between the two communities. Vadugapatti panchayat president M. Thavam said both Dalits and Piramalai Kallars lived in harmony in the village. Though the incident was deplorable, it should not be blown out of proportion as it would harm the peaceful coexistence of the two communities, besides bringing disrepute to the village, he said.

The headmistress of the local school was also in denial. Nothing should be done to precipitate the issue, she cautioned. Of the 166 pupils in the school, which was established in 1921, 90 were Dalits and no discrimination was shown to them, she claimed.

However, Nagammal, who has not yet fully recovered from the shock, feels that the government should intervene immediately to ensure protection to her and her son. She wants the authorities concerned to shift her son to another school so that he can continue his studies without fear. Though the school reopened on June 10, the boy did not attend classes fearing reprisals from some persons belonging to the dominant community. She has also urged the government to allot a housing plot in a safer location so that she can live peacefully. Her demands have the backing of Dalit organisations, including the Usilai Vattara Dalit Kootamaippu.

The NCSC has urged the district administration to help the victim to find admission in a government school and hostel in Madurai town. The boy needs counselling and relief, the commission said.

Dalit residents of the village say the June 3 incident has brought to the fore various problems faced by them. According to Theivammal, different discriminatory practices prevailed in all the six villages—Vadugapatti, Ramanathapuram, V. Kallipatti, Kongupatti, Puthur and Vilarpatti—that come under Vadugapatti panchayat. Dalits describe the peace meeting held in the village by the Deputy Superintendent of Police and investigating officer on June 9 as a knee-jerk reaction by the authorities.

M. Jayakumar, Suresh’s maternal uncle, said the practice of insulting members of the oppressed community for wearing footwear in front of caste Hindus occurred every now and then. Only recently was a girl student of the local government school, M. Malarvizhi (name changed), beaten with a broomstick for walking with footwear on a street in the caste-Hindu area, he said.

K. Mangayarkarasi (name changed), a brick kiln worker, said her son was taken to task by caste Hindus for wearing footwear while crossing a street last month. Dalits are not even allowed to ride two-wheelers in caste-Hindu areas. There is no proper pathway to the burial ground used by them. According to some residents, non-Dalits had warned them also against complaining to visiting government officials and activists of human rights organisations about the discriminatory practices.

 

 

Stressing that the Vadugapatti episode should not be taken as an isolated one, M. Thangaraj, organiser of the Madurai district unit of the Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front (TNUEF), listed the discriminatory practices: segregated dwelling units; separate burial grounds for Dalits; denial of access to places of worship, common meeting place, village squares or community halls; ban on the use of footwear in front of caste Hindus; and the two-tumbler system in tea shops. In many villages in Usilampatti block, B.R. Ambedkar’s picture was not to be found in government offices and schools, he added.

As in the case of several villages in the region, the Dalits of Vadugapatti are farmhands and have to depend on the dominant community for their livelihood. They have been working as manual labourers in brick kilns or as agricultural workers in land belonging to caste Hindus. In Vadugapatti village, there are around 220 Dalit families and 500-odd caste-Hindu families. With the monsoon playing truant in the past several years, Dalit youth have migrated to the northern States seeking jobs in snack-making or fast food units.

“As many as 120 brick kilns are located in Usilampatti and Chellampatti panchayat unions. They are owned by caste Hindus. Almost 90 per cent of the workers involved in brick-making are Dalits brought from the western and northern districts of Tamil Nadu. Most of them are treated as bonded labourers,” Thangaraj said.

The TNUEF is planning to launch an agitation shortly to ensure that Dalits in Vadugapatti walked on the thoroughfares in the village wearing footwear, he said. Thangaraj asked the authorities concerned to take stern action against those who practised untouchability in any form. Strong action from the government in one village would send a warning signal to the forces of oppression in the entire region, he opined.

Director of the NCSC Venkatesan said the villagers had been told that discriminatory practices against Dalits and various forms of untouchability not only were inhuman but were against the law of the land. Expressing concern at the escalating incidents of atrocities against Dalits, he said these would be taken up at the State-level review meeting of the NCSC slated for July.

Significantly, discrimination against certain communities insofar as wearing footwear has a long history in Tamil Nadu. The senior archaeologist C. Santhalingam said there was historical evidence to show that using footwear was treated as an exclusive right of certain groups in ancient Tamil land, though footwear might have been originally treated as something to protect the feet, particularly in tropical climatic conditions. A 12th-13th century A.D. stone inscription in the Kongu region speaks of a decision by the Kongu Chola administration to lift the ban on wearing footwear by Kammalars (artisans) and Idayars (cowherds), he said.

    Respected Sir,
    Sub: – Sh.B.R.Mahi (PF52135), Ex-Manager, LBO Hoshiarpur Previous at B.O. Usmanpur. Charge sheet dated 05/10/2009. REVISION PETITION TO CMD PNB NEWDELHI
    It is submitted that I was compulsory retired from PNB LBO Hoshiarpur vide. Disciplinary authority order dated 6.7.2011 and confirmed by the appellate authority. My review application was rejected by The ED vide has order date 18/10/2012. I want to bring it into your kind notice that these order are issued on following flimsy grounds only to endorse the views of disciplinary and appellate Authority. It is not based on independent judgment based on independent views.
    The view expressed in inquiry reports are not based on facts and figures. Enquiry report is made on the verbal instruction of the senior officers who are prejudiced against me because of some personal grudges against me. The charge sheet issued to me was very lengthy and records pertaining to the charge sheet were not issued to me to make my defense / reply to charge sheet intentionally.
    The charge sheet was so exhaustive that with a single day visit to the branch, the whole record could not be inspected and noted to file the written reply of charge sheet. Documents must be provided to me to give the proper reply to the charge sheet in defence. I visited the branch on 23/10/2009 and requested for supplying attested copies of the certain documents for reply of charge sheet. I have not been given ample opportunity intentionally to give the reply of charge sheet on the verbal instructions of higher authorities.

    A) MOST URGENT: – “THAT INSPITE OF SEVERAL NOTICES AND WRITTEN REQUESTS PROPERLY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT BY THE BANK, THE BANK HAS NOT PROVIDED ME DOCUMENTS AND THE LIST OF PROSECUTION WITNESS ON WHICH THE CHARGE SHEET WAS BASED. THEREFORE PROCEEDINGS CONTINOUED WITHOUT PROVIDING THE DOCUMENTS ARE NULL AND VOID.”
    B) That the order of penalty has been passed by the incompetent authority.
    1) It is submitted that in terms of PAD Circular No. 16 dated 10.1.2011, the Head Office has scheduled and designated the Disciplinary Authority as well as Appellate Authority w.e.f. 10.1.2011, according to which, the Asstt. General Manager in the Circle Office has been designated as Disciplinary Authority and in case, the Asstt. General Manager is not posted then the Deputy General Manager would be the Disciplinary Authority. In the present case, the Asstt. General Manager Mr. K.V. Anand was posted in the Circle Office and he was designated as Disciplinary Authority. But in my case, the Deputy General Manger Sh. S.S.ARORA has passed the final orders dated 6.7.2011 in violation of PAD Circular No. 16 dated 10.1.2011. It is a settled law that when the order has been passed by the incompetent authority then, the same is vitiated being illegal and not liable to be sustained. The reviewing authority is requested to kindly look into this aspect and to quash and set-aside the impugned orders dated 6.7.2011 of the Disciplinary Authority.
    2) I want to Quote a glaring example of victamisation that I was on leave from 14-92007 to 29-10-2007 to visit Abroad and during this period Sh.M.L.AHUJA was officiating as Manager and he obtained loan application on 13-10-2007 and sanctioned on 15-10-2007 and also disbursed the loan of 19-10-2007 to the borrower. The mistakes committed by Sh.M.L.AHUJA by granting loan to his nephew The onus of these mistakes has been put on me even as I was not in India. Copy of passport attached which clearly depicts that I was not in India in these days. How can I rectify the mistakes committed by Sh.M.L.AHUJA on returning from abroad?
    3) That with regard to charge no 4 Account No.KCC 86 – 12162 Balbir Singh for Rs.5 lacs dated 11-03-2005.
    Allegation – The limit was sanctioned on 11-03-2005 for 5 lacs. At the request of the party and as per office note, the limit was reduced from Rs.4 lac to Rs.2 lacs w.e.f 17-05-2005 but the limit was not reduced in system and party is allowed to avail the limit up to the level of Rs.4.lac. The balance outstanding in the account in Rs.3.92 lac as on 17-09-2009. Findings of the Inquiry Officer/Disciplinary Authority.The Inquiry Officer has proved the charge and the Disciplinary Authority , Reviewing Authority and appellate authority have endorsed the same. I had submitted in my appeal that neither this loan was sanctioned by me nor it was renewed by me nor I was posted at B.O. Usmanpur on 17.5.2005 and thus, the allegation was not remotely attributable to me. It may be seen that on 17.5.2005, I was posted in a different branch i.e. Rahon. But, the Appellate Authority has not appropriated this evidence and without making any comment on my this submission, the appeal was rejected. Thus, the order of Appellate Authority is non-speaking, arbitrary and perverse. Since, the aforesaid issues have not been discussed by the Appellate Authority in his order, therefore, the order is non-speaking, arbitrary and perverse.In support of my aforesaid contentions, I refer the following landmark judgements thereby showing emphasis in my contention in a legal and valid form to which the reviewing authority is requested to consider the same sympathetically.
    4) The Disciplinary Authority (DA) recommended stop page 5 Increments at the very first instance to the CVO , PNB Head Office New Delhi but CVO declined to endorse. At the second instances Disciplinary Authority recommended stop page of 7 Increments again CVO didn’t concur and sent back the case to Disciplinary Authority . Disciplinary Authority again at the third instances recommended stop page of 7 Increments but CVO again declined and adamant. At the fourth instances on the instruction/pressure of CVO Disciplinary Authority recommended The Compulsory Retirement to CVO and the CVO concurred. It is quite clear from the above proceedings that the Disciplinary Authority decision was based on the pressure adopted by CVO. The CVO concurred on 25/6/2011 and he was retired on 30-06-2011 before 5 days his retirement. It is submitted that CVO disposed of this file at page end of his retirement only clear the Backlog his files, by not applying his mind in an impartial and by giving proper thought to the career of an officer. He with the just stroke of pen spoiled unblemished career of 27 long years.
    5) The unproved charges by inquiry officers are also taken as proved to enhance gravity of charge ti mislead the higher authorities to give unjustified punishment to me by Disciplinary Authority.
    6) No Reputation loss is suffered by the bank and no financial loss had been incurred by bank only to give justify the punishment of The Compulsory Retirement awarded by Disciplinary Authority and appellate authority, this is being stated.
    7) Where as many officers of PNB with whose conduct bank has suffered a lot of financial loss but has not been compulsory retired and has been continue to work and promoted by the Bank. I want to quote many instances with reference to my above submission that
    i) Sh.Arora Senior Manager, PNB Nawashahr Doaba ( Main branch), was charge sheeted and again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    ii) Sh.Madaan officer of PNB Nawashahr Doaba (Main Branch), ), was charge sheeted and again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    iii) Sh.Gajjan Ram Manager PNB Phillaur, was charge sheeted in DD cases and again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    iv) The Senior Manager PNB Phillaur, was charge sheeted and again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    v) Sh.Bakshish Singh Bagla Manager PNB, Binjoo (Hoshiarpur) was charge sheeted in fraud case and bank has suffered financial loss but despite this he was again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    vi) Sh.Dev Raj Deputy Manager PNB, Binjoo (Hoshiarpur) was charge sheeted in fraud case and bank has suffered financial loss but despite this he was again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    vii) Sh.Charanjit Chopra Manager PNB Mehatpur Uladani
    viii) ( Nawashahr) was charge sheeted in fraud case and bank has suffered financial loss but despite this he was again allowed to continue work and promoted.
    ix) Sh.Harpal Singh Deputy Manager PNB Mehatpur Uladani (Nawashahr) was charge sheeted in fraud case and bank has suffered financial loss but despite this he was again allowed to continue work and promoted.

    All These Instances are quoted to bring it into your kind notice that despite Disciplinary Authority(DA) recommended lesser punishment to me due to undue pressure tactics adopted by outgoing Retired CVO Sh.K.Bhaskar from PNB. My punishment was enhanced by Disciplinary authority (DA).
    I Quoted many high courts & supreme courts New Delhi judgements at the time of inquiry, appeal, Review in my defence but were not taken into consideration.
    1) It is submitted that when I took over the charge as branch Manager at Usmanpur, the performance of the Branch was at its lowest deposit of figure of Rs. One Crore Thirty Lakh and Credit was at One Crore Fifty Six Lakh. I did my work honestly and diligently and took the performance of the Branch to its new high ( i.e. deposits of Rs. Ten Crore Seventy Five Lakh and Credit of Rs. Nine Crore Eighty Lakh)
    2) During business review meeting DGM Circle Head Office Hoshiarpur has declared that I would transfer the officers by keeping performance of the branch in mind and those who are good performers will be given branch of their own choice and suitability. But my transfer has been done ignoring my hard work and performance only due to being a Scheduled Caste Manager and Discriminated against me.
    3) My work at Usmanpur branch stood first in the Distt. And 5th number in circle. In my branch each and every activity was done as per bank norms and nothing has been done fraudulently.
    4) Only due to misreporting by Sh,Jaswinder Saini LDM on the directions of Sh.M.S.Nijjar AGM. Both those officers are ill treating me due to their past personal grudge. Both these officers have shown and presented a bad performance of Usmanpur Branch intentionally.
    5) Both these officers as explained in previous paragraphs intentionally and deliberately harass me on flimsy grounds and tarnish my image in the eyes of my superiors.

On the basis of my caste, the then AGM, Circle Office Hoshiarpur Sh M.S.Nijjar Discriminated, harassed and in a revenge full manner acted against me only to tarnish my image in the eyes of my superiors. Sh.M.S.Nijjar has some personal grudge against me because he over stepped his powers when he transferred me from Banga branch while working as S.R.M Jalandhar . Then Zonal Manager Amritsar took the notice of the transfer and ordered to keep this transfer in Abeyance and also called the explanation of Mr.N.S.Nijjar.
    Since he is working against me and trying to tarnish my image as well as trying to entangle me in one way or the other way. Only from this point he started acting in a whimsical manner against me.
    7) I and my wife are ill despite my illness. I have been intentionally transferred to Hoshiarpur during the period of March closing and inspection period, so that I cannot remove irregularities during inspection.

I received many complaints from borrowers that he was getting illegal graft from the borrowers of Agriculture Loan. I have pointed out this matter to Sh. Jaswinder Saini . That’s why he was malicious towards me. Branch inspection was going on and during the inspection I was relieved to join at PNB LDM Office Hoshiarpur . I was not given the opportunity to remove the small irregularities and verbal instructions were issued to the Inspector to make me scape goat .Even small mistakes which could be easily rectified , are presented to the management in such a way that it looks as Major Irregularities , If i was not relieved during Inspection these small mistakes / errors could be rectified .
    13) Sh .G.L.Sharma investigated the Branch for sanction of Education Loan . He had not asked for my comments in the above investigation and submitted his false and fabricated report , without any evidence , baseless report on the verbal instructions of Sh.M.S.Nijjar .
