I am currently in a situation which requires your good guidance and instructions to take the right step. Sir, My grandfather was illiterate and at the time of buying land (back in 1970) in the various deeds the caste mentioned was "Kurmi"which comes under BC in my state. However actual caste was "Dhanuk" which comes under EBC Category and there is no doubt about it as all other family members in our village come under Dhanuk Caste. Now based on this one wrong information in the land deed several years later when my father applied for Govt Job (Back in 1980) he got a Caste Certificate bearing Kurmi caste. Several years later when i applied for Govt Job i too had my caste certificate as Kurmi because in common language most of Dhanuks call themselves Kurmi due to one reason or other. However, after coming in contact with my lineage in village i came to know about this discrepancy and was not convinced why i Should have a caste certificate of Kurmi when actually I am of dhanuk lineage. I am afraid if i submit an affidavit to my current employer that I have wrong caste mentioned it will be illegal to do so. However there is no change in reservation benefits as Kurmi under BC category in state and OBC in central and Dhanuk in EBC category in state and OBC in Central doesnt change any benefits i recieved. Is there any way i can change my caste mentioned on the property papers and Is it wrong to get a new caste certificate of Dhanuk on the basis of enquiry of my lineage in Village. Will my current employer accept my affidavit regarding my actual caste.
Looking forward to your kind reply.
