Amended rules/policy of getting SC/ST/OBC caste certificate and domicile certificate in Uttarakhand


To avoid the contempt of court and to avail the benefit in the coming local body elections Uttarakhand state government in a major decision with long term impact has modified the criteria of obtaining a domicile certificate (Sthayi Niwas Praman Patra) and caste certificate. Now it will be easy for the Schedule Caste (SC), Schedule Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) candidates to secure a caste certificate in Uttarakhand.
These are the important and crucial documents with regard to government jobs, force/army recruitments, admissions in institutions, reservation and availing the benefits of various schemes of the government.

Major points of the new policy related to caste certificate and domicile certificate are as follow:

  • The cutoff date for the considering a domiciled resident of state is now 1985 not 1950. So if you are residing in Uttarakhand from 1985 then you will be considered “Sthayi Niwasi” of the state and can also get your caste certificate (Jati Praman Patra) in Uttarakhand.

  • Those living in the state on the date of formation of the state (9th November, 2000) are now considered domiciled (“Sthayi Niwasi”) in Uttarakhand.

  • This has reduced the importance of permanent resident certificate (Mul Niwas Praman Patra)

  • High Court considers “Mul Niwas Praman Patra” and “Sthayi Niwas Praman Patra” as equivalent.

  • It is not necessary that you must have “Mul Niwas Praman Patra” and/or “Sthayi Niwas Praman Patra” to get the caste certificate

  • For getting the caste certificate the person will have to submit an affidavit mentioning that he/she has not obtained and will not obtain any caste certificate from other state.

  • Which caste person can get the caste certificate?
  • Or which caste can get the benefit of this amendment?

  • Ans:-Those Schedule Castes mentioned in the schedule-5 and those Schedule Tribes mentioned in the schedule-6 of the Uttar Pradesh Reorganization Act 2000.

  • To get OBC certificate the concerned caste must fall in the list of OBCs mentioned in the UP Public Service Act and its GOs of on/after 24th March 1994 (UP Lok Seva Adhinium 1994)


  • This will further increase the number of candidates who would like to get the benefit of reservation for handful of government jobs. So embrace for further competition.

  • Lastly the matter is said to be still pending with the High court’s double bench. These steps have been taken on basis of the single bench judgment and certain committee recommendations. So wait for the final verdict.
