  1. My caste certificate application has been rejected due to reason “No enough address proof”. Hence i applied once again by paying Rs. 60 with all address proof, but the application get submitted directly to Zonal Thasildhar and again get rejected stating ” Applied directly to Zonal Thasildhar- Apply through VAO”. On verifying from others it has been confirmed that the rejected application will appear in Returned Applications menu and then we have to rectify and no need of paying again. Now my que is what is the maximum time for the rejected application to appear in Returned Application menu for correction.

      • Yes, it’s showing. But what is the procedure to reapply?? Reapply module will be activated only if the rejected application comes to Returned Application MENU. But it is taking too long time. In between if you apply it gets directly submitted to the last officer who rejected the application.
