||According to my knowledge and if I speak about my state that is Telangana(previously Andhra Pradesh) the caste system is somewhat different.
My father belongs to the community called Telaga were it is termed as equivalent to Kapu and Balija by the government. That is, it is a union of Kapu,Telaga and Balija.
I'll explain this how the variations are given or continuing for this union.
In some parts the people consider them as General or OC(Telaga, or pedda kapu(kapu)) and in some parts they(kapu) are treated as BC(OBC).This is the situation going in Costal Andhra and Rayalseem etc.
But, if I talk about Telangana region here, 90% of Kapu are treated as BC.
Since, my family hails from Andhra I, marked as General(OC). My parents got intercaste marriage. My mother belongs to SC.
Is there any chance to change my caste?
Since, in Telangana kapu are treated as BC can I eligible for changing my caste and also I've born in Telanaga.
Telangana and AP are sht states when it comes to these matters, as I explained above, people who convert to Christianity still enjoy benefits of SC/ST. This is done by bl**dy politicians to get votes and nothing else.
You can change your religion (christianity, buddhism or) to whatever you want, and also can enjoy shamelessly benefits of SC/ST given by governement of India (whatever is written in your 10th class certificate is your caste for your lifetime).
You can however try to mannange the tasilldar, MRO, senior assitant, junior assitant in revonu ofce of your area in your state and get caste change by means of bibing the offcianls.
