The revenue Department issues the caste certificate informing the individual belongs to a particular caste listed by the Tamil Nadu government. This is specially required by the students and individuals joining government services. This is only a temporary certificate. It may be used for several years. An individual cannot change his / her caste. However, while converting into another religion, the class may change necessitating a new community certificate.

So, whenever converting to another religion, the concerned individuals should register the same and obtain new caste certificates.

There are some other reasons apart from education when caste certificate is required. For example, the 2-daughters welfare scheme. A specific certificate only for this purpose will be issued.
