as per the Central creamy layer criterion II & III dated 08.09.1993 only the sons and daughter of following “government servants” will be treated as creamy-layer.

(i) Parents, either of whom is a Group-A officer. (Direct Recruitment)

(ii) Parents, both of whom are Group-B officers. (Direct Recruitment)

(iii) Parents of whom only the father is a Group-B officer and he gets into Group-A at the age of 40 or earlier.

2) your son would be entitled to OBC NL certificate as you are not promoted to group A at age of 40 or earlier

Memo. No. 1464–BCW/MR–59/10 Dated 30th April, 2010 as regards guidelines for issuance of OBC Certificate states -

".....14. Regarding determination of ‘Creamy Layer’, the following points shall be considered:

a. First, status of the parents (not of the applicant) is to be ascertained. If any of the parents of the applicant holds a constitutional post or belong to Class I or Group ‘A’ service of the Central or State Government before the age of 40, he is considered to belong to ‘creamy layer’’.If both of the parents belong to class II or Group ‘B’ service the Central or State Government before the age of 40, he is considered to belong to ‘creamy layer’’. If such parents retire or die after retirement, the status will remain unchanged. If, however, parents die or suffer permanent incapacitation during service, the applicant shall not fall under ‘Creamy Layer’."

Since you are a group B officer therefore income test will apply in your case and in the said case the income from the salaries is not included therefore your son in my advise will get the benefit of OBC

"parents of whom only the father is a direct Class II/Group B officer and he gets into Class I at the age of 40 or earlier."

The above category falls into creamy layer and since you are not covered under it, you kid is entitled for NCL OBC status.

Refer to the relevant circulars of the NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR BACKWARD CLASSES

Dear Sir,

The relevant circular issued by Tamil Nadu is as follows, which was for outer limit of Rs.4,50,000/- which was subsequently enhanced to Rs.8,00,000/- the relevant link is found below. Now it is enhanced to Rs.8,00,000/-

As such I impress upon you that your income does not permit you to enter the category "Non-creamy layer". One thing you may do...why don't you get salary income of your wife showing he is in the custody of mother, if your sentiments hurt, never do this.




Enhanced to Rs. 8 lakhs.




Definition :

The term creamy layer was first coined by Justice Krishna Iyer in 1975 in State of Kerala vs NM Thomas case, wherein he observed that the benefits of reservation are snatched away by the top creamy layer of the 'backward' caste or class, thus keeping the weakest among the weak always weak.

The Creamy Layer is used to Differentiate Socially economically developed Persons in a caste from those who are Deserving of Reservation and Empowerment. . It is only applicable to OBCs, SC and STs are exceptions to this differentiation. This is estimated using annual Income of a Family- Currently It is 8 lakhs, meaning if your family is earning 4 lakhs/annum and you belong to an OBC caste, you are eligible for reservation. But if your family has Income above 6 lakhs, then you are not Eligible for reservation. This allows the Benefits of reservation to seep through to the poor.

Even if you are a direct group B officer or a direct Class II officer and get into Class I at the age of 40 or earlier, then you will be considered as creamy layer.

Salary income is not a criteria for computing annual income.

Since you are still a Group B officer, you are eligible for concessions under OBC NCL category.

Your son can apply for OBC NCL Certificate.
