  1. Hi Ranjith, I applied community certificate for my childrens on 12/09/2019. Daily I am checking its status online.Today is the 12th day. Till now the status is showing as “Application Submitted to VAO(Verifier)”. There is no progress in status. Any idea what is the time limit for VAO’s to approve our requests ?

    • There is no time limit will be specified on the government website but usually, most of the peoples get their community certificate within 30 days.

          • Hi Ranjith, Sure. I will wait for 30 days and reach to VAO if the status remains same. I tried many times to the TNeGA help desk number 1800 4251 333. No one is picking the call. I waited for around 18 minutes and disconnected the call. My polite suggestion is government should set up a dead line for VAO’s to approve request. Within 30 days, if a VAO didn’t accept/reject a request, then automatically reminders should be sent to VAO’s and his/her higher official mentioning that VAO have not yet approved the request. Our Government have brought e sevai facility for providing a fast and hassle free service to people. Service should be improved Ranjith.

          • yes, you are right sir. The tnesevai service needs to be improved.

            Thanks for your suggestion, I will send an email regarding this issue.

    • Hi, just log in to TNESevai and goto ->Revenue Department->Community Certificate. It will open the new windows on that, you can find the check status tab. Enter your application number to track the status of the community certificate.

  12. Hello Mr. Ranjith,
    I have applied for OBC Certificate on october 27th in Now my application status is Submitted to tahsildar. But our area maniyar informed my dad, that the application got rejected, so apply new one. But i don’t get any status like application rejected in my esevai account. My doubt is when my application got rejected, how it is possible to show status like submitted to tahsildar? If you know the answer please guide me Mr. Ranjith. whether to believe online portal or this area maniyar?

    • Believe Online Portal. If the application got rejected then it will show the “Application Rejected” status. Did you submit the Income Certificate while applying? It is mandatory for the OBC certificate.
