India is pretty organised, especially with its residents’ welfare. The central and state governments create programs and schemes that offer citizens multiple benefits. The government, through various departments, recognizes different people (caste/community) and thus offers special benefits. Residents registered under caste categories can avail education schemes, food subsidies, financial benefits, and many government incentives.

Through the Revenue Department, the Tamil Nadu government provides eligible citizens with caste/community certificates. The certificate helps identify the holder as part of a particular group like SC/ST/OBC in Tamil Nadu.

It’s a proof document that confirms the user belongs to a caste. Users can apply for government benefits such as education scholarships, employment opportunities, and financial schemes. The user must apply or have a community certificate to achieve any government incentive. It’s easy to apply for a Community certificate as directed in the guide.
