The information required by the department is as under:
1.   Name of the Applicant
2.   Father/Husband’s Name
3.   Sex (M/F)
4.   Residential Address
5.   Ration Card No (Copy to be enclosed)
6.   School Leaving Certificate / Transfer Certificate(Copy to be enclosed)
7.   Details of Community Certificate of Parents
8.   Details of School Certificates of Parents
9.   Date of application

Applicants need to submit an application furnishing the details of their caste, income and other relevant information to the Taluk office, in whose jurisdiction the candidate usually resides. The application submitted by the candidate would be scrutinized by the caseworker in the Taluk office and would then be forwarded to the concerned revenue official (Village Accountant in case of villages and Revenue Inspector in case of urban areas).

The revenue official verifies the details of the application by visiting the candidate’s place and submits a report with a recommendation. The Tahsildar verifies the report and either approves or disapproves the recommendation. Based on the Tahsildar’s orders the certificate/endorsement is issued to the applicant.

Documents required are as under:
1.  Parents’/ Parents siblings(preferably male) Caste Certificate issued by the prescribed Authority.
2.  Photo ID
3.  Copy of State School Leaving Certificate (SSLC).
4.  One photo
5.  Photo copy of the ration card
6.  Affidavit on stamp paper of Rs 10.
