Three peons, posted at Madhya Pradesh's Damoh district court, have been sacked for violating the state's two-child norms.
Kalyan Singh Thakur, Chanda Thakur, and Lalchand Burman were sacked on June 23, after a year-long departmental inquiry found out that they had violated the norm that was added to MP civil services rules in 2000.Sources said11more peons are facing similar action for violating the norm.

However, Kalyan pointed out a similar rule, barring people from contesting panchayat polls was amended, but poor people like them were being punished. “Poll eligibility rules of politicians were changed in 2005. I am finished, I need Rs 4,000 for admission of my son. I am finished.What would I do now?'' he said. Thakur said the government would need to sack lakhs of employees if the rule is implemented.

The three, who would move the high court on Monday , were found to have violated the norm two years earlier, after then district judge V P Shrivastava had sought family details of employees, including the number of children born after January 26, 2011. They were served shocause notices in December 2015 and given 15 days to reply, before a departmental inquiry in March found them guilty of norm violation.
