My brothe just cleared the UPC exam for GSI and has been selected as a Class 1 officer.
We come under SC category The problem is, the UPSC is not accepting his caste certificate as it is not as per their prescribed format. I have the below questions ?
1. What is the procedure of getting a fresh caste certificate (in UPSC format) ??
2. If we manage to get the prescribed format of caste cert, will it be an offence to have 2 caste certificates ?
3. In 2014, the rules were changed. A fresh caste certificate will be issued henceforth from the place where one's father was born. My borther's certificate was issued here in Pune. Hence in our case, do we need to go to our hometown to get the sign of the competent authority or can we just approach the authority here in Pune and get a fresh one in the prescribed format ?
