No there can be no change in one's caste. There is no legal procedure for such conversion.

caste can not be changed.

if you feel any type of problem, you may change your surname according to your choice.

no restriction on it.

Wow! If it can be done, UNLIKE you, i would prefare to change my General Caste to a Backward caste. All those first preferences  they use to get in india, for just being a "Backward Caste"..

 

The Chief Minister of Assam, himself , is a so called "Backward Caste" as an example.

FANTASTIC IDEA/ THOUGHT.

BRING IN LAW AND LETS ALL CHANGE  TO SC/ST AND GET ALL THE BENEFITS CONSTITUTIONALLY.
