    Hello Friend,
    As caste system provides reservation in Jobs and Education systems in India. As far Indian Government as divided the various castes into 4 types of category. Named SC,ST,BC,OBC

    BC were abbreviated as Backward caste who falls down socially and economically in Indian societies. In, BC section various sub caste were there In Andhra pradesh. provides some sort of reservation in Jobs and educational organizations according to respective rules. As rules may vary from one post to another.

    OBC were abbreviated as Other Backward Caste In India who may not possess social and educational background were considered to be OBC and It was considered for central Government jobs rather than BC. approximately Central Government of India provides 30% of reservation for these category aspirants.


    If you're going to apply for any Central Government post then, OBC being compulsory to retain reservation. you may get the certificate by visiting District Mandal office by following some procedure.

    Hope you Understand,Thank you.

    OBC stand's for other backward castes, BC stand's for Backward caste if I define it correctly then on an average OBC is under better position in terms of education and prosperity then BC.So priority of getting caste facility for backward class is needed high as they are more sufferers than OBC citizen.

    It is not compulsory or mandatory to get certificate of OBC category.A brilliant student must not take OBC certificate he/she can get jobs easily under competition with General candidate.Only OBC certificate is needed for those citizen who try to establish them as OBC category to get relaxation offered by the rules of CENTRAL GOVT regarding jobs/scholarship/seat etc.

    Thank you,

    dear friend,

    It is the central government of india who classified various people on the basis of their castes.There are different caste people live in india includes :

    GENERAL CASTE
    SC or SCHEDULED CASTE
    ST or SCHEDULED TRIBES
    OBC or OTHER BACKWARD CLASSES etc.





    There is a collection of different category candidates or people in india but the main thing to know is what is the different and why these different castes are made by government.


    These different castes are made according to their employement or their financial status and also,on the basis of their ancestors.

    Government conducts a number of exams and other things under which some of castes excluding general category get some relaxational conditions which may vary for differnet castes.




    Difference between BC AND OBC caste ?

    Backward class(BC) people is a collective term, used by the Government of India, for castes which are economically and socially disadvantaged and face, or may have faced discrimination on account of birth.

    AND

    Other Backward Classes are described as "socially and educationally backward classes", and government is enjoined to ensure their social and educational development.



    sOME OF THE BACKWARD CLASSES OR THE SCHEDULED CATEGORY ARE FURTHER SUB DIVIDED INTO SEVERAL GROUPS LIKE AS :

    BC 'A'
    BC 'B'
    SC 'A'
    SC 'B' etc.



    best of luck !!
