On Polygon, an Indian district provides caste certificates

Through LegitDoc, a document-verifying system based on the Polygon blockchain, a district administration in Maharashtra, India, has begun stamping 65,000 caste certificates.

In India, marginalized people such as tribes use caste cards to get access to government benefits and subsidies.

The Gadchiroli district government is hoping that by implementing blockchain technology, it will be able to counteract false claims of benefits and incentives based on falsified caste certificates.

Starting Tuesday, the district began issuing certificates online and through its site to certify the veracity of papers stored on the Polygon blockchain.

In India, the caste system is a tight hierarchical hierarchy in which lower castes are frequently associated with poor and destitute societies.

The project is part of the “Digital India” effort, which aims to research on-chain e-governance and, if successful, will be scaled across Maharashtra.
