If the childless couple belongs to same religion of the parents and child, then there is no objection.
If difference in religion, then there must be legal agreement signed between both parents with the help of a family lawyer for adoption and rituals.
There is no problem on caste basis as long as religion is same.
God bless you.

As per 'The Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956', the child to be adopted should not be more than 15 years of age unless there is a custom or usage applicable to the parties which permits persons who have completed the age of fifteen years being taken in adoption. Also in such cases where the age of adopted child is more than 15 years, the caste certificate is issued by the District Magistrate after making due inquiries.
