@OBC candidates make no mistake
  • OBC Creamy layer = General category for UPSC. They are not eligible for age-attempt relaxation.
  • Only non-creamy layer OBC candidates eligible for age-attempt relaxation.

To claim OBC reservation benefit in UPSC, you need TWO certificates:

  1. OBC caste certificate
  2. Non-creamy layer certificate.
    1. Non creamy layer status depends on your parents’ income and property.
    2. It doesn’t depend on your income/property
    3. It doesn’t depend on your husband/wife’s income/property.
    4. If your mom/dad is government employee then INCOME criteria doesn’t apply. (e.g. if dad is class3 employee, then it doesn’t matter whether he gets 6 lakhs or 7 lakhs. You’re still non-cream layer. For more, read this PDF file click me)

  1. Thank you for your post. This is excellent information. It is amazing and wonderful to visit your site. It really gives me an insight on investment companies in India.

  2. Under OBC reservation given above in non creamy layer criteria 2(IV) that class 3 employee commes under non creamy layer. But in regional MRO offices they are taking criteria of income and not issuing OBC certificate. Please clarify this mismatch of criteria as soon as possible
