Now, caste verification to go online

Pune: In a major step towards addressing one of the most vexed issues confronting the State government, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Research and Training Institute (BARTI) will facilitate online applications starting from Monday for all those seeking a caste verification certificate.
Nearly 1.86 lakh applications for caste verification are currently pending with the State government. However, all of this could soon change, BARTI Director General DR Parihar told reporters on Wednesday.
The online procedure will help applicants make error-free applications, generate an acknowledgement slip of accepted applications and consequently help track their progress.
This will spare applicants the trouble of walking down to the caste verification offices to follow up on their applications, Parihar said. It is common for applicants to make dozens of visits to the office, often returning with unsatisfactory answers.
BARTI has worked closely with IT major Mastek in developing the software for the online application, bringing it out in a record three months.
The fact that the 15 three-member caste verification committees did not have a proper back-up office to process the applications had helped intermediates and brokers flourish, Parihar said.
Interestingly, 98 per cent of the applications made get a valid endorsement, Parihar said, wondering how brokers had done so well in this field given the statistics.
The online application website will have all details of acts, rules, government notifications and circulars pertaining to caste verification procedure, Parihar said.
One of the biggest roadblocks in issuance of caste verification is that the posts of president (of the rank of additional district collector) in 10 of the 15 caste verification committees in the State are vacant.
Member secretaries of the committees who endorse the validity certificate are often not found in office.
Insufficient documents provided by applicants comes as the third reason for non issuance of the certificate.
 
To apply
Beginning Monday, applications for caste verification can be made on (For Scheduled Caste, VJNT and other backward class categories only)
Helpline: 18002330444
(open for 16 hours between 8 am and 12 midnight)
Website will give detailed procedure on filling the form
Warning to heads
BARTI Director General DJ Parihar has issued a stern warning to all heads of educational institutes, saying any demand of payment of full fee from students awaiting decision on their caste validity certificate or threats to cancel their admission will be dealt with severely.
