Hi, We are sorry to hear your problems. The ultimate solution is for you to file an RTI first and seeking all the discrepancies related to your application for issuance of the caste certificate. It is one step to solidify your stand before reaching the court for delay in issuance of the caste certificate by the authority even though you have right documents.
To file RTI, you can either fill RTI online or offline. For online, visit this url (https://rtionline.gov.in/request/request.php) or (https://onlinerti.com/apply). For offline application you have to get a Rs. 10 postal order from the nearest office. It has two sections, you have to fill both of them and you can keep the smaller section which is the left one, and send the bigger section which is the right one is supposed to send with your application.
For filing a RTI you can only ask the question with "what". In your case, you have to ask what is the status of the application of the caste certificate. For clear understanding read ( http://www.lawfarm.in/blog/how-to-draft-an-rti-petition )
It is essential that you mention other contents such as -
1. To provide you with the order/circular for the issuance of the caste certificate.
2. All the names of the authorities involved in issuance of your caste certificate.
3. To enlist all the necessary documents needed to be submitted for the issuance of the certificate.
4. The status of the application pending which was submitted on date so and so (it is necessary to mention when you submitted to your application for issuance of the caste certificate).
Wait till you receive the response of RTI and then you can initiate a criminal proceedings against the authorities involved in your issuance of the caste certificate who delayed the issuance of the caste certificate despite of submitting all the requisite documents. They can be charged u/s 166 of the Indian Penal Code for disobeying the law and causing injury to the concerned person. If the delay is only because of the mistake of the concerned authority then it can punished under The Schedule Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities Act), 1989.
