Madhya Pradesh Non-Creamy Layer Certificate
Madhya Pradesh Non-Creamy Layer Certificate
In India, the Government introduced the caste-based reservation system to address the issues of discrimination experienced by the disadvantaged communities. The primary objective of the reservation system in India is to uplift the socio-economic status of those underprivileged communities designated by the Government as Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST), and Other Backward Class (OBC). However, the people belonging to the OBC community and the General Category are provided equal opportunities in every field. Therefore, to avail the benefits of the reservation, the Other Backward Class (OBC) is sub-categorized as Creamy Layer, and Non-Creamy Layer wherein the people belonging to non-creamy layer should obtain the OBC caste certificate to benefit from the facilities offered by the government. In this article, we look at the procedure of obtaining Madhya Pradesh Non-Creamy Layer Certificate in detail.
Creamy and Non-Creamy Layer Difference
The non-creamy layer sector is differentiated from the creamy layer based on the annual family income. The creamy layer or the non-creamy layer certificate is issued for the people belonging to the OBC community based on their socio-economic status. Apart from the income, there are specific other criteria to be considered for government servants to fall under the non-creamy layer. This was done to distribute the benefits of the reservation among the weaker sections of the Backward Class. The creamy layer is not applicable for any of the benefits of the reserved category as they are treated equally as the General Category whereas the non-creamy layer is called merely as the OBC (Other Backward Class).
Criteria for Non-Creamy Layer
- The annual income of the parents that includes salaries as well as income from other sources should not exceed Rs. 8 Lakhs.
- None of the parents of the recipient should be a Group A / Class I Officer under the Central / State Government.
- None of the parents of the recipient should belong to any service in any PSU, Bank, Insurance Company, Educational Institution or in private employment, comparable with Group A / Class I service under Central / State Government or holds any Constitutional post.
- The person will be treated as belonging to non-creamy layer if none or only one of the parents is a Group B / Class II Officer under the Central / State Government.
- The person will be treated as the non-creamy layer, if none or only one of the parents belong to any service in any PSU, Bank, Insurance Company, Educational Institution or in private employment, comparable with Group B / Class II service under Central / State Government.
- A person will not come under the non-creamy layer if parents of whom only the father is a Group-B officer gets into Group-A at the age of 40 or earlier.
- For government employees, only their cadre in the office is the criterion for non-creamy layer status and not the income limit. All other government servants who are having income greater than 8 lakhs are still eligible for the OBC non-creamy layer certificates if they fall under class 3 cadre under Central or State Government.
Benefits of Non-Creamy Layer
Those belonging to the Non-Creamy Layer are eligible for all the benefits provided by the Government and other sectors for the reserved category, unlike the Creamy Layer. Compared to the Creamy-Layer, Non-Creamy Layer section has better access to education, employment and sponsors of the government.
