• About OBC creamy layer

I am a Headmater (Gazetted) of  Andhrapradesh state government high school belongs to OBC category.(got promotion on 31-8-2014 as Headmaster)
My annual incomes from salaries for the last three financial years are 395410, 500951 & 593308. this financial year it will be nearly 745000.
I have no other income except salary. My wife is Housemaker.

My doubt is that whether my 16yrs daughter is eligible to OBC-NCL reservation in higher studies.

1) creamy layer is income cieling that separates poor OBC category from the well off who are ineligible for quota 

2) if annual salary is over 6 lakhs then you r family would not be eligible for quota 

3)your daughter is not eligible under OBC non creamy layer category

1) The last paragraph of the Department of Personnel circular clarifies that  if income from salaries of the parents of any candidate is more than Rs.2.5 lakh per annum, income from agricultural land is more than Rs.2.5 lakh per annum, but income from other sources is less than Rs.2.5 lakh per annum, the candidate shall not be treated to be falling in creamy layer on the basis of Income/Wealth Test provided his parent(s) do not possess wealth above the exemption limit as prescribed in the Wealth Tax Act for a period of three consecutive years.

2) since you fall below the wealth tax exemption list your daughter would be eligible for OBC reservation

Within the sweep of the circular issued by the govt of India your daughter falls within the definition of 'creamy layer'. As a corollary thereto, she cannot avail the benefit of reservation.
