I will diaagree with all those who advise without going through Govt instructions. A child inhereits case of father.  If SC lady married non-Sc the neither children do not ge the reservatin benefit not does hse loose. If non-SC lady marries SC man she doe snot get reservation but her children will. In the given situatuion the mother does not want to name the father so ther eis no case of caste certificate unless obtained fraudulently.
