It is necessary to change your address in the caste certificate to be effective in all respect as all caste certificate benefits are available locally. So as soon as you change your address you should also change your caste certificate in terms of the address.

As per law you will have to swear an affidavit in case of change of address,as caste certificate is permanent and the authority gives you fresh certificate you could leave out, and if not granted you will present the old caste certificate along with the affidavit for all further documentations.
