  1. मैं मनीष कुमार हूं और मैं दिल्ली में पैदा हुआ हूं। मेरे पास एससी सर्टिफिकेट है जो एसडीएम दिल्ली द्वारा दूसरे राज्य के आधार पर जारी किया गया है, लेकिन मेरे माता-पिता राजस्थान के हैं। साथ ही वे राजस्थान के एससी समुदाय से हैं।

    क्या मुझे एससी आरक्षण के सभी लाभ मिल सकते हैं ??

    क्या मुझे एससी उम्मीदवार के रूप में माना जाएगा ??
