Benefits of reservation under Other Backward Class (OBC) category

Assessment of equivalence of employees 

It is a fact that evaluation of the equivalent or comparable posts in public sector undertakings, Banks, Insurance companies, Universities, private employment vis-à-vis Government posts could not be established so far. However, the extant instructions of Department of Personnel and Training dated 8.9.1993 read with instructions of 14.10.2004 provide that till such time the equivalence of comparable posts in such organizations vis-à-vis Government posts are established, the criteria of income/wealth test shall apply to determine their creamy layer status.

The benefit of reservation is not available to the candidates who fall in creamy layer. However, as per the extant instructions, the sons and daughters of persons employed in public sector undertakings, Banks, Insurance companies, Universities, private employment etc. having income of upto Rs.6 lakhs either from salary or from other sources would fall in non-creamy layer and would be eligible to get the benefits of reservation under Other Backward Class (OBC) category.

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 Vishambhar Prasad Nishad, Smt. Chhaya Verma and Ch. Sukhram Singh Yadav in the Rajya Sabha today.
