    OBC creamy layer limit increased from ₹6 lakh to ₹8 lakh




    Earlier, at www.SarkariNaukriBlog.com, we have informed our visitors that OBC category reservation creamy layer ceiling will be increased.  Today Government come up the announcement that the OBC creamy layer ceiling has been increased from ₹ 6 Lakh in present to  8 Lakh per annum.

    In fact,  the proposal, drafted by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, GoI, had been pending before the Cabinet for more than a year.   This proposal is now cleared by the Finance Sub committee on 21st August 2017.


    Therefore,  those earning beyond ₹ 8 lakh per annum would now fall in the creamy layer classification.  This is in keeping with the Supreme Court directive in the Indira Sawhney vs Union of India case of 1990 where it said that the creamy layer of the OBC should not avail reservation facilities.





    This change of creamy layer increase to ₹ 8 lakh   would increase the number of people getting the benefit of reservations in government jobs and educational institutions under the OBC quota.


    Commission to examine the Sub-Categorization within OBCs 



    The Union Cabinet has also approved a proposal for setting up of a Commission under article 340 of the Constitution to examine the issue of sub-categorization of the Other Backward Classes (OBCs).


    The Terms of Reference of the Commission will be :

    1. To examine the extent of inequitable distribution of benefits of reservation among the castes/ communities included in the broad category of OBCs, with reference to the OBCs included in the Central list.
    2. To work out the mechanism, criteria, norms and parameters, in a scientific approach, for sub-categorization within such OBCs, and,
    3. To take up the exercise of identifying the respective castes/communities/ sub-castes/ synonyms in the Central List of OBCs and classifying them into their respective sub-categories.

    The Commission shall submit its report within 12 weeks from the date of appointment of the Chairperson of the Commission. The Commission shall be known as the Commission to examine the sub-categorization of Other Backward Classes.
