Yes, the Income Certificate is a necessary document at the time of application but only in the cases where it is needed.
Income certificates are requested by the college to look into the applicant's economic background for offering fee concessions/ scholarships or any another benefit as may be deemed fit by it. Therefore, according to my knowledge it is mostly required of only those students who are looking for fee waivers or any other benefit as I mentioned above.
In any case, if you have it, then you should keep it handy. And if you do not have it then you can get it from your concerned village office.
