Answering the questions of law referred to it, the Full bench comprising Justices R. Subbiah, C. Karthikeyan and C.
Saravanan gave the above ruling. The bench said a person studied the course in Tamil or written the University or Competitive examination in Tamil will not ipso facto recognize or qualify him or her to claim reservation under PSTM category.

It was this certificate which will form the basis for recognizing a candidate to have studied in Tamil medium of instruction so as to enable him or her to get the benefit of reservation under PSTM category, the bench added.
