A bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud did not concur with the findings of the Bombay High Court that if a person continues in service for a long period of time and the certificate is found to be fake at a later stage then, he or she may be allowed to continue in the service.

The verdict came on a batch of petitions including the one filed by the Maharashtra government against the Bombay High Court judgement.

The Supreme Court, however, said that the findings of its verdict would not be made applicable with retrospective effect and would be applied now onwards.
