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?
