OBC Caste certificate is valid for life long and the OBC--NCL is valid usually for 1 year. So if you are planning on availing OBC benefits, you need to have the recent OBC-NCL certificate. If the current one that you have will expire anytime soon before the counselling, you should get a new one done.
