Income limit of 'Creamy Layer' increased to 6 lakh

Income limit of 'Creamy Layer' increased to Rs. 6 lakh

Union Cabinet yesterday approved to increase the limit of 'Creamy layer'  bar from Rs.4.50 lakh to Rs.6 lakh...

Revision of Income Criterion to exclude Socially Advanced Persons/ Sections (Creamy Layer) from list of other Backward Classes (OBCs) 

The Union Cabinet today gave its approval for increase in the present income criterion of Rs. 4.5 lakh per annum for applying the Creamy Layer restriction throughout the country, for excluding Socially Advanced Persons/Sections (Creamy Layer) from the purview of reservation of Other Backward Classes (OBCs). 

The new income criterion will be Rs. 6 lakh per annum. The increase in the income limit to exclude the Creamy Layer is in keeping with the increase in the Consumer Price Index and would enable more persons to take advantage of reservation benefits extended to OBCs in government services and admission to central educational institutions. 

This would bring about equity and greater inclusiveness in society. The Department of Personnel and Training and the Ministry of Human Resource Development would issue necessary orders to this effect.

only increasing the limit of Creamy layer is not enough. Govt. should ensure that reservation policy is implemented properly. Many Departments are violating the reservation policy in direct recruitment.They are giving appointment to candidates of reserved categories only against the vacancies reserved for their category irrespective of their merit.Unreserved vacancies are being filled up by general category candidates only.I am the victim of such blunder.
