Karnataka will issue caste and income certificates to Brahmins to reduce the socio-economic inequality faced by the community.
The notification comes a month after the Karnataka State Brahmin Development Board on June 10 appealed to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to issue the certificates to the Brahmin community
The move was initiated in order to help Brahmins benefit government schemes and scholarships. In a notification sent to all DCs, M L Varalakshmi, under secretary to the Revenue Department, stated that the Karnataka Brahmin Development Board has been established to come up with several schemes that will benefit Brahmins in various sectors
The board was set up in March 2019 as a state-run company with Rs 5 crore authorised capital and Rs 5 crore equity and is registered with the Registrar of Companies.
It is said that the certificates will also help students from the community to avail scholarships for higher studies from the state-funded board if their gross annual family income is less than Rs 8 lakh per year.
