What is a Caste Certificate?
A Caste Certificate is the proof of your belonging to a particular caste, especially in case you belong to any of the ‘Backward class’ or ‘Scheduled Castes’, as specified in the Indian Constitution.
Why do I need a Caste Certificate?
There are certain special privileges granted to citizens belonging to Scheduled or Backward Castes, such as reservation of seats in the Legislatures and in the Government Service, waiving off a part or the whole of the fees for admission to schools and colleges, quotas in educational institutions, relaxation of upper age limits for applying to certain jobs, etc. To be able to avail these privileges, you must be in a possession of a valid caste certificate.
