From my personal experience so far, there is no prescribed caste certificate model or what so ever which you can get ready made. One has to apply for caste certificate through MRO of their respective areas. For that you have to take the community certificate certified by the religious and caste association having office in your. For every caste there are organizations safeguarding the interest of their community. On getting the certificate, there is a prescribed format through which one has to apply for the caste certificate. Based on the information given by the community head, the MRO shall issue the caste certificate again verified with the original gazette released by the government at the state and central level. Once that certificate is issued , it becomes the legal document and every department has to accept the same.
