Anyone of the family members has to belong to the scheduled tribe in order to facilitate a proof while applying for the scheduled caste certificate. It's not necessary for all the members of the family to belong to the scheduled tribe. You can apply for the ST certificate on the basis of your mother belonging to the ST tribe.
