My application for the caste/community certificate for my daughter is rejected owing to the failure of submitting her father's caste certificate. Her father is from Karnataka and mother is from Kerala and she is born and brought up in Kerala and stayed throughout with her mother. In Karnataka, Muslims who belong to the general category are not given caste certificate. What should I do to get the caste certificate for my daughter?

To get a caste certificate, you need to prove your caste. To prove caste, SSLC book or any relevant document which has caste of the applicant mentioned in it needs to be submitted. If it is not available, parent's SSLC book or any relevant document which has caste of the applicant's parent mentioned in it needs to be submitted. If you can provide any of this, then you will get caste certificate.
