OBC NCL - parents state government employees

Hello everyone,
This issue has been bugging me for quite sometime and wanted to get this clarified once and for all. Please take some time out and help me with this.
Both of my parents are state government employees in Andhra pradesh. My father is a teacher and my mother works in Planning department. Both of my parents doesn't fall under class I/II (A/B) employees. However their combined salary exceeds the income limit mentioned for the OBC non creamy layer criteria. My caste falls under OBC.
We don't have any other source of income apart from salaries.
Do I fall under OBC NCL?

  • You are an OBC NCL.

    In case parents are in govt job, only grade is considered and not salary.
    And since, both of your parents are not even Grade B employees, you are an OBC NCL without a doubt.

    You will fall under obc category.

    Parents of the candidate should not be class1 before 40years of age. That's it. Only that income other than SALARY and AGRICULTURAL income should not be more than the limit. In other words one will fall under obc even if gross salary and Agri income put together or independently is more than the limit. Income from sources other than these two should not be more than the limit.

    If parents are class 1 before 40, children will not have obc benefits even if income is less than the limit. This condition mostly applies to children of retired class1 officials.

    Can you please elaborate on what exactly you meant by service status?

    By service status I meant type of govt service the person holds whether constitution post or others(whether group A,B or C,D).
    What I meant to say is that if your grandfather/grandmother belongs/belonged to class A/B category then your parents belonged to creamy layer based on that and then you can’t claim non-creamy status even your parents are group C/D category

    I don't think that's what the act says.

    Can you please quote the section in the obc act where this clause is mentioned?

    You have misinterpreted the Clause.
    It means if someone's parents are a Group I employee /promoted to Grp I before 40 years of age, their sons/daughters will continue to be in creamy layer even after they have retired.

    For example, daughter of an IAS officer comes in creamy layer. She will continue to remain in creamy layer even after her IAS father has retired.
  • Ok thanks for clarifying and correcting me

    My father is officer through bihar administrative services and has never been promted his name shows in basic grade officer on genral administration website am i eligible ?
    my mom is homemaker .. and is there any specific criteria which decide grade a b c ...
  • Your father must be a grade b officer. Just ask your father once.
    As you said he has never been promoted, I am assuming your father has crossed the age of 40.

    In that case, you are eligible for OBC Non-Creamy layer.

    Necessary criteria- should not have been promoted to grade A before the age of 40.

    My father was a class 3 officer when he joined Maharashtra state service. He while retiring was a class 1 officer ( i guess he became class 1 before 40). Am i eligible to claim reservation under obc category?
    In the notification i read that if your father was a class 2 and promoted to class 1 before 40 you cannot claim reservation. But my father was a class 3
    Please help

    Was your father promoted to class 2 and then to class 1 post before the age of 40?

    I think sub-inspector is a class 2/3 post and tracher is a class 3 post. So, you will be eligible for OBC- NCL.

    Just confirm the grade/class your parents belong to.

    If your father was promoted from group B to group A before the age of 40, then you will not a an OBC-NCL.

    BTW, it's kind of unbelievable that your father got promoted from group C to B to A withing a span of 15-18 years. Do confirm once again.
