What is caste certificate?

Caste certificate is a proof of a person belonging to a particular caste. For example – Schedule caste, Schedule tribe, OBC.

Government thinks that peoples belonging to Schedule caste, Schedule tribe and OBC really want special encouragement and opportunities to progress as rest of the citizens. Therefore, certain special privileges are granted to these peoples such as reservation of seats in the legislature, government service, waiving off part or entire school/college admission fees, quotas in education institutes, upper age relaxation in certain jobs etc. In order to avail these special privileges, a citizen belonging to schedule caste, schedule tribe or OBC category should have a valid caste certificate.

What you need to do to get a caste certificate?

In order to apply for a caste certificate, forms are available either online or you can collect the same from the concerned local office of sub-divisional magistrate or tehsil or revenue department in a city/town/village.

A local enquiry has also been conducted before issuing of fresh certificate in case none of your family members earlier has been issued a caste certificate.
