The Haryana government has decided to delete objectionable words from annexure 'B' of Scheduled Castes (SCs) lists.

Now, objectionable words would not be used in the Scheduled Caste certificates, chief secretary PK Chaudhery said in a release here on Thursday.

Stating that objectionable words from serial number 2 to 9 in annexure '2' would be deleted as they had lost their relevance, he said while issuing SCs certificate, words 'Balmiki' and 'Chamar' would be used.

He said these words were being used since the time the state was formed and had been a big obstacle in connecting these people to main stream and towards changing view of the society towards them.

He said circulars had been issued in this regard to all the administrative secretaries, heads of departments, divisional commissioners, chief administrators, managing directors of boards, corporations and public sector undertakings, deputy commissioners, sub divisional officers (civil), registrar, Punjab and Haryana high court and registrars of all universities in the state.
