    NCBC (National Commission for Backward Classes) had recommended that the creamy layer be increased to annual income of Rs 9 lakhs for rural and Rs 12 Laks for urban areas. Based on this, the social justice ministry had proposed to hike the 'creamy' layer from an annual salary of Rs 4.5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh. Cabinet Ministers Narayanaswamy, Veerappa Moily and Vayalar Ravi wanted this to be raised to Rs 7 Lakhs at least. Recommendation of NCBC means an OBC with Rs 75, 000 or Rs 1 lakh monthly income should be considered poor.

    In India `affirmative action` is euphemistically and very loosely used for reservations when in fact it is something else. In US where the policy originates, it means that a black or a female or some deprived section will be given prefernce for educational/job opportunity all things being equal i.e. if two candidates score 90% each and one belongs to the deprived category then he/she will get it.

    The backward panel head is so backward and retarded in his thinking. According to him, unless an OBC is filthy rich, he/she becomes eligible for reservation despite their parents earning Rs 100k per month. Seriously, this country is filled with buffoons.

    In India certain communities have realized that just because of their sheer numbers, and ability to vote as a united block they can get disproportionate amount of benefits, and privileges. This against the ethos of democracy and republic. And very soon if not rectified this will cause a breakdown of our system.

    OBCs earning Rs 6 lakh eligible for reservations

    OBCs earning Rs 6 lakh eligible for reservations - Rediff.com India News

    In a bid to widen the ambit of beneficiaries getting reservation under the Other Backward Classes quota, the central government on Thursday enhanced the ceiling for applying the 'creamy layer' restriction on 'socially advanced persons'.

    While the income criterion so far was Rs 4.5 lakh per annum, the Union Cabinet on Thursday increased it to 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.

    The creamy layer bars the affluent among OBCs from reservation benefit on the basis of family income.

    Raising the bar to Rs 6 lakh would allow more OBCs to avail of the 27 per cent quota in jobs and education.

    "It would enable more persons to take advantage of reservation benefits extended to OBCs in government services and admission to central educational institutions," a statement issued by the government said.

    "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," it said.

    The limit for income was decided in 2008, according to which families with an annual income of Rs 4.5 lakh and above cannot be allowed the benefits.

    According to the previous recommendation made by the OBC Commission, the ceiling was kept at Rs 12 lakh per annum for urban areas and Rs 9 lakh for rural areas.

    Sources said this recommendation was not financially feasible as it would have reduced the number of people that comprise the creamy layer.

    A Group of Ministers, set up to resolve the issue, has recommended a uniform ceiling of Rs 6 lakh per annum

    The cream always floats to the top and so it is not surprising if the ceiling keeps floating upwards!
