  2. Dear Sir,
    I am the first applicant of my family. None of my family members holds cast certificate. So what should I do while submitting the documents as mentioned, ” upload parents’ caste certificate” ? I have been asked to submit two caste certificates. But in my locality no one holds caste certificate from my sub-caste. What should I do in this case? And what should be the time limit of the deed? Whether the deed should be of my ancestral house or ploughing field? Whether I have to collect the receipt of tax from panchayat or from BLR office? Please help!!! I am in utter confusion.
