Caste determination of child.


My Cousin is an Scheduled caste by birth and got married to a Christian man 2 years back. She gave birth to a child last month, now the question is whether the child will belong to scheduled caste?

No. Caste of the child is by birth and it is that of the father not mother as has been held by the Supreme Court of India.
