Implementation of creamy layer criteria

Implementation of creamy layer criteria

In case of recommendation of name of a candidate by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) for service allocation, the candidate is considered for allocation to one of those services by the Government for which he has indicated his preference subject to fulfilment of other conditions like Medical fitness, eligibility for availing reservation as per Civil Services Examination Rules and extant instructions on the subject. Further, vacancies reserved for Other Backward Classes (OBC) candidates are filled by the candidates eligible for availing OBC (Non Creamy Layer) reservation.

The Supreme Court of India in the Indra Sawhney judgement referred to ‘creamy’ layer as those sections or identified groups among the backward classes who are excluded from the purview of reservation. Further, the criterion for determining creamy layer amongst OBCs is provided in the Schedule to the OM dated 08.09.1993. For Category VI of the aforesaid Schedule, wherein Income/Wealth Test for determination of creamy layer has been prescribed, the income ceiling is revised from time to time. The current income ceiling for that purpose is Rs 6 Lakh per annum, as stipulated in DoPT OM dated 27.05.2013.

This was stated by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Devender Goud T. in the Rajya Sabha today.

OBC creamy layer income limit to be hiked to Rs 8 lakh per annum

OBC ‘creamy layer’ income limit to be hiked to Rs 8 lakh per annum

New Delhi: With a large number of vacancies in central government jobs meant for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) remaining unfilled for want of candidates, the central government is mulling relaxing the ‘creamy layer’ criterion by raising the income ceiling to Rs eight lakh annually.

27 per cent of seats in government jobs and educational institutions are reserved for OBCs provided the annual income of the family is up to Rs six lakh. Those who earn above that are referred to as the creamy layer and are not eligible for reservation. Raising the ceiling would result in a larger pool of candidates eligible for government jobs and seats in educational institutions.

The Social Justice Ministry is working on a proposal to raise the annual income ceiling of OBCs to Rs 8 lakh, according to official sources.

A Cabinet note is likely to be moved in this regard soon, they said.

When contacted National Comission for Backward Classes (NCBC) Member Ashok Saini told PTI that the panel had recommended more than doubling the income ceiling to Rs 15 lakh.

“Even two decades after reservation (was introduced), out of 27 per allocated quota, it has been seen that only 12-15 per get utilised. As per our analysis, the major reason behind this is the ceiling on annual income,” Saini said.

As per Mandal Comission report, in 1980 OBCs constituted 52 per cent of India’s population. The panel’s report was based on the 1931 census. The National Sample Survey Organisation had in 2006 pegged the OBC population at 41 per cent.

Government job aspirants may not have to give non-creamy layer proof

Government job aspirants may not have to give non-creamy layer proof

There may be no need for production of multiple non-creamy layer certificates for candidates belonging to Other Backward Class (OBC) seeking reservation in government jobs and instead they can provide self-attested photocopy of such documents, as per new rules being considered by the Centre.

Every candidate seeking reservation in central government posts and services as OBC candidate is required to submit a certificate confirming his or her status and also produce non-creamy layer status certificate.

“The appointing authorities would accept production of self-attested photo copy of the non-creamy layer certificate, subject to verification of the original non-creamy layer certificate, as is the practice being followed for verification of other original documents,” the Personnel Ministry has proposed.

It has sought comments from the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Department of Higher Education, Union Public Service Commission and Staff Selection Commission on this proposal.

It has also sought feedback on a new format for issue of non-creamy layer certificate suggested by National Commission of Backward Classes.

The non-creamy layer certificate would be applicable to OBC candidates who are covered under income or wealth test criterion. The income limit is decided on the basis of income earned during three previous financial years preceding the year of appointment, the Personnel Ministry has said.

To illustrate, the validity of non-creamy layer certificate issued during any month of the financial year 2016-17 covering three preceding financial years is accepted by the authorities concerned for any appointments or recruitments which would be valid during the period April 2016 to March 2017, it has proposed.

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs…

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs…

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Uttarakhand and Bihar

The Union Cabinet today approved the following as suggested by the Group of Ministers.

Jats are already included in the State List of OBCs in nine States. Formal reports of the State Backward Class Commissions on the subject for the States of Haryana (2012) and Himachal Pradesh (2002) and books relating to socio economic status of farming communities in northern India and caste, land and political power in Uttar Pradesh are available. These may contain valuable and relevant material which can be utilized by the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) to give its advice on the demand for inclusion of Jats in the Central List of OBCs in the States of Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan (two districts), Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Uttarakhand and Bihar.

This decision would enable the Jat Community to avail the benefits of reservation available to the Other Backward Classes for employment/ admission in /to Central Government services and posts/ educational Institutions.

Background:
Jat Community has been demanding inclusion in the Central List of Other Backward Classes for various states. The NCBC which was set up under the NCBC Act 1993, has been entrusted with the function of examining requests for inclusion of any Class of citizens as a backward class in the lists (Central List of Other Backward Classes) and hear complaints of over inclusion or under inclusion of any backward class in such lists, and tender advice to the Central Government as desired appropriate. At present, the Jat Community is included, in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Gujarat – Jat (Muslim) and Rajasthan (except in Bharatpur and Dhaulpur districts). They are, at present, included in the State Lists of nine States. The requests of Jats for inclusion in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bharatpur and Dhaulpur districts of Rajasthan was earlier rejected by NCBC in 1997. The NCBC under the NCBC (Power to Review Advice) Rules 2011, decided to consider requests for inclusion of the Jat community after collecting additional socio-economic data through the ICSSR, in addition to data from the SECC. A GoM was constituted on 20.8.2013 to (i) engage with the representatives of the Jat community periodically; and (ii) apprise itself of the progress of the survey being conducted by NCBC through ICSSR in six states.

Income limit of ‘Creamy Layer’ increased to 6 lakh

Income limit of ‘Creamy Layer’ increased to Rs. 6 lakh

Union Cabinet yesterday approved to increase the limit of ‘Creamy layer’  bar from Rs.4.50 lakh to Rs.6 lakh…

Revision of Income Criterion to exclude Socially Advanced Persons/ Sections (Creamy Layer) from list of other Backward Classes (OBCs)

The Union Cabinet today gave its approval for increase in the present income criterion of Rs. 4.5 lakh per annum for applying the Creamy Layer restriction throughout the country, for excluding Socially Advanced Persons/Sections (Creamy Layer) from the purview of reservation of Other Backward Classes (OBCs).

The new income criterion will be Rs. 6 lakh per annum. The increase in the income limit to exclude the Creamy Layer is in keeping with the increase in the Consumer Price Index and would enable more persons to take advantage of reservation benefits extended to OBCs in government services and admission to central educational institutions.

This would bring about equity and greater inclusiveness in society. The Department of Personnel and Training and the Ministry of Human Resource Development would issue necessary orders to this effect.
