Apply for Caste Certificate
What is Caste Certificate?
A Caste Certificate is the proof of one’s belonging to a particular caste, especially in case one belongs to any of the ‘Scheduled Castes’, as specified in the Indian Constitution. Caste certificate is important for each and every individual in India, and at the same time, you cannot apply for caste certificate online in all states. Few of the state government and district administration bodies don’t wish to issue/support an online application in order to get caste Certificate.
There is one more misconception in this regard, please note that caste certificate and caste validity are NOT same. Yes, Caste Certificate is a document which states your caste, while Cast Validity certificate validates your caste certificate. Basically it is a proof that your caste certificate is not dubious or inaccurate.
