I am from Delhi and I belong to SC category. Will I be considered as an SC or General in UPPSC?
You need to do is check if the Community that you belong to in UP SC Category also falls under SC Category in Delhi. Because some times SC Communities list differs from State to State. If your Category from Delhi also falls under UP SC Community list, then showing that, you might have to get a SC Certificate so that you can avail SC Reservation in UP as well. Now, you studying in Delhi makes you eligible for claiming Delhi domicile but because the Category certificate is that of Delhi's there might be an issue. Not all the Communities listed in the UP SC Caste list are also listed under Delhi SC Caste list. And then there is a separate Central SC list too. So to avoid any confusions and last minute hurdles, it is for your own good to get a SC Caste Certificate from the UP as well.
