I belong to Hindu Lingayat Sivsimpy caste which is also known as Simpi/Shimpi (as per a document issued by my community "ALL INDIA VEERASHAIVA LINGAYAT SAMAJ", a registered community association since 1980s)
I have discussed about this dilemma with the Association President, we can also call ourselves Hindu Sivasimpy or Lingayat Simpi to avail reservation quota under Central OBC List.
But the main issue is with my School LC in which my father has mentioned Hindu Veerashaiva Lingayath as Caste without mentioning the Subcaste (error is from School authorities too as there is no subcaste column in the LC form).
Can somebody please help me by explaining the correst legal process to correct these errors inorder to avail Government sponsored benefits using Reservation system as my father is a retired government employee earning pension & mother is a home-maker (pension amount is less than 5 lakhs p.a. & not a Group A gazetted/non-gazetted employee) & I am an unemployed youth aspiring to appear for Group B exams of Central Government Service like SSC & other Banking services.
Awaiting for a prompt & serious reply from this forum's learned & esteemed Lawyers, Advocates, Judges & even junior Law practitioners.
