Other Backward Classes – OBC – Increase in income Criterion

Other Backward Classes – OBC – Increase in income Criterion from Rs.4.5 lakhs to Rs.6 lakhs

The Government has increased the income criterion for the persons to avail reservation benefits for Other Backward Classes from Rs. 4.5 lakh to Rs. 6 lakh per annum with effect from 16.05.2013.

The increase in the income limit to exclude Creamy Layer is in keeping with the increase in the Consumer Price Index.

The increase in income limit of Creamy Layer would enable more people of Other Backward Classes to take advantage of reservation in Government Services and admission in Central Educational Institutions, thereby bringing about equity and greater inclusiveness in society.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri P. Balram Naik in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha.
