Oracle Case insensitive search

Data entered in table column could be in different cases lower/upper making it difficult for search operation to retrieve all possible matches from the table
e.g.  To search abcd from the table if you enter Abcd as input string or anything that does not match with cases in which data is stored will result in “no rows selected” & vice versa.

Suppose case table has below rows, each one with different case but similar string

SQL> select * from case;
TEXT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Abcd
aBcd
abCd
abcD
abcd
ABCD

6 rows selected.
