Assam CM launches digital process of issuance of caste certificate for students
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on August 1 launched 'Mission Bhumiputra', a digital way to issue digital caste certificates to students.
The Chief Minister inaugurated the Bhumiputra Portal in a program organized at Shrimant Sankardev Kalakshetra.

The Headmaster will fill the application forms and send it to the Deputy Commissioners, after which the application will be forwarded to the respective caste or tribe boards.
Thereafter, the Deputy Commissioner will hold a meeting with the boards to decide on the protocol for issuance of caste certificates to the students.
If any doubts arise in the process, the application may be sent for further verification.
The certificates will be available in Digi Locker under the IT Act, digitally signed by the respective Deputy Commissioners.
With the launch of Mission Bhumiputra, the problems people faced earlier regarding securing documents will be solved.
