Dear Gangi Shetti,
You didn't informed about the "Place of Birth" of your Children and from where you obtained their "Birth Certificates".
As its a matter of "issuance of Cast Certificate " which requires enquiry by the "Revenue Authorities" therefore per me it is the Native Mandal/Dist/State of Parents to apply for issuance of Cast Certificate of Children.
Procedure for Application in Andhra Pradesh is as follows:
Earlier an original certificate was required for every application. Caste certificates are issued to the SC, ST, BC and OBC categories. This certificate is used for education and employment purpose. Certificate is issued based on the revenue enquiry. This information can be obtained from the MPHS database. Nativity and Residency certificates are being issued by MRO. This certificate is used for the purpose of education, passport, and issue of Ration card. The person who requires the certificate applies to the MRO. The MRO marks it to the RI for verification. The verification is done by Panchayat Secretary and crosschecked by RI. After verification the Certificate is issued by MRO. The details of the certificates are maintained in the form of a register. A separate register is maintained for each type of certificate. This information can be obtained from the MPHS database.
Now a integrated Certificate is being issued for Caste, Date of Birth and Nativity, thus reducing a lot of extra work. In G.O.M.S.No. 272 Revenue (Ser. III) Department, dt.14-3-96, Govt. have issued orders introducing the system of issuance of Permanent and Integrated Community, Nativity and Date of Birth Certificates to SCs, STs and BCs in the Form prescribed (i.e.,) in Form-III by the Competent Authorities viz., Dist. Collector, Revenue Divisional Officer / Mandal Revenue Officer as the case may be from the academic Yea 1996-97. The printed forms of Permanent and Integrated Community, Nativity and Date of Birth Certificates and the Registers to be maintained by the village Administrative Officers and Mandal Revenue Officers were already supplied to the Mandal Revenue Officers and Revenue Divisional Officers in the District.
An Act (Act. No. 16 0f 1993) to Regulate the issue of Community Certificate relating to the persons belonging to the SCs, STs and matters connected there with or incidental there to was passed and the same was came into force w.e.f 15-5-97.
Government have also framed the Rules in G.O.Ms.No.58 SW (J) Department dt. 12-5-97 viz., the A.P. (SCs, STs and BCs) Issue of Community, Nativity and Date of Birth Certificates Rules, 1997 regulating the procedure of issuance of Community, Nativity and Date of Birth Certificate to the SCs, STs and BCs and also for verification of social status claims of the individuals. These rules came into force with effect from 16-5-1997.
Government have notified the authorities in Column (2) of the Annexure-I of the Rules within their territorial jurisdiction as “Competent Authorities” for the issue of Community, Nativity and Date of Birth Certificates declaring the persons as belonging either to SCs and STs and as per notification of the Government of India and to BCs in accordance with the notification of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, issued from time to time.
