OBC NCL criteria for wards of PSU Employees

I gave this prelims as an OBC-NCL candidate and have qualified for mains. The problem is I thought that the old criteria for NCL (i.e. the wards of class 3 and 4 employees in PSU are in NCL irrespective of their income) is still prevalent. I got to know about the PSU debacle today, that how the 20 OBC candidates' candidature was cancelled because they were deemed to be in the creamy layer by the DoPT.
DoPT says that they didn't have any established equivalence.
My question is - Who establishes equivalence? Is it the central government or the PSU?
My father works as a class 3 employee in a PSU. If he gets an equivalence certificate from his employer would that help?
Should I not fill DAF and simply skip this attempt?
Anyone else in the same situation as me?

    Wait for this year allocation of job, this is a big issue now, first see what happens this year but if you have cleared pt as general category score then not to worry much. Try to clear mains also as general category candidate

    But how would I know if I have cleared mains as a general category candidate? UPSC won't declare the cut off marks and a candidate's marks in prelims until the exam cycle ends. Also, the UPSC doesn't allow switching categories within the exam cycle. So If I filled the form for prelims in the OBC category then I will have to fill the form for mains in the same category. Correct me if I am wrong.

  • Bro as far as I know that case regarding OBC ncl issue in CSE is pending in the Delhi High Court. Also there was thread regarding this on the forum do search for it. By the definition of government gazette PSU employees are not government employees and are treated just like others while granting ncl status.

  • Ye kaese ho skta hai..seats to allocate ho gyi thi and ias to 180 seats hi thi.

    I know 2 people who could not get ias due to this.

    Now what will happen to those who joined ias in place of them?
    ·
  • I called the UPSC folks today. They said that I can draft a mail to the under secretary of CSP and ask him to reevaluate my answer sheet for prelims under the general category.
    If I qualify then I will be treated as a general candidate.

    Can somebody post a link to the SC judgment? from what I have heard that case is still on going and no judgment has been delivered so far.

    There is no classification or equivalence has been established in psus vis a vis central govt employees. It is not possible also. The respective psus need to establish equivalence or otherwise income criteria will determine ncobc status.

  • I just called the DoPT. Their contact number is 011 23092110.
    As was expected from a sarkari daftar the response to my question that who will establish the equivalence was "main yaha pe academic discussion k liye nhi baitha hu. kon karega kon nhi karega iski discussion k liye main authorised nhi hu" :smile:

    Bro as far as I know if your income is within prescribed limit then you can get the OBC ncl certificate with no issues no matter what class your parents are employed (except government employees).

    1.equivalence has to be established by institution or DoPT
    2. 3 consecutive years rule applies here or not.(since 1 year income is below 6 lakhs)

    thank you
    Bro there was issue of establishing the equivalence and the case regarding OBC ncl status of some aggrieved students of CSE was going on in Delhi high court (don't know exactly). If PSU / bank employees are considered by government then by the definition of government gazette you are considered as OBC ncl. I would recommend you to refer to the judgement of court in that case.

    It is not about what I think, rather what the authority which is responsible for accepting my candidature thinks.
    I am filing an RTI. Highly unlikely that I will get an answer before the DAF submission date but still worth a try for now and for someone else in the future.

    You are wrong in your assumption.

    There will be 40 - 50 candidates like you, dont worry and ten will be clearing again.
    Keep studying as the case will be probably won.
    See the service allocation for last year is still delayed, we assume it is only because of us.
    Even if it comes, service allocation will be tried for a stay.

    Another update:
    There was a stay for Chennai CAT judgement which was vacated very recently by HC which gives two options for DoPT - go to SC for stay whose chances are very less or to violate HC stay vacation and publish the allocation - in which the chances of getting stay are magnified.

    Any how, my advice for you is to not keep this in mind and keep studying.

    Actually that will not help, except a political or legal solution nothing will help.
