Follow below instruction to know OBC Certification rules,

  • If you have applied for OBC status in initial application then you will be considered against OBC vacancies else not.
  • OBC certificate is valid for as long as the community is notified as OBC. It means if there is reservation for OBC then you are eligible but Non creamy layer certificate is only valid by SSC for 3 years.
  • It is necessary for everyone to get the OBC certification renewed after every three years for ssc exams as creamy layer status may change if a person remains in creamy layer for 3 years continuously.
  • Like i said, OBC certiticate is valid for 3 years from date of issue. If closing date for receipt of application is beyond 3 years then OBC certificate should be renewed. (New Notice contradict with earlier rules)
  • OBC certificate should be in prescribed format published by SSC.
  • Certificate for OBC is on the basis of one’s parents income. Hence if any person is in any sort of employment, his income is not to be added to his parents’ income while calculating the maximum income required in case of acquiring the OBC certificate.
  • To claim OBC reservation benefit, you need two certificates i.e. the caste certificate and the creamy layer certificate. It should be in the format provided by Staff Selection Commission.
  • OBC Castes fall in two categories namely ‘State’s own list’ and ‘Central government’s list, both are different. To apply in SSC Exam, your caste MUST be in central list.

Who is Creamy Layer in OBC

The creamy layer status of a candidate is determined on the basis of the status of his parents and not on the basis of his own status or income or on the basis of status or income or on the basis or status or income of his/her spouse. Therefore, while determining the creamy layer status of a person the status or the income of the candidate himself or of his/her spouse shall not be taken into account.

Below is category wise determination of cream layer status,

Government Servant parents—- by post/class(not by salary)

Farmer parents—- by land holding

Businessmen parents—- by annual income

From Where you can issue OBC Certificate?

  • Go to emitra help desk and submit your state caste certificate, resident proof along with father’s voter id card and father’s income certificate, they will issue you new center caste certificate.
  • Other ways, below are the The authorities competent to issue Caste Certificate
    • (i) District Magistrate / Additional Magistrate / Collector / Dy. Commissioner / Additional Deputy Commissioner / Deputy Collector / Ist Class Stipendary Magistrate / Sub-Divisional Magistrate / Taluka Magistrate /Executive Magistrate / Extra Assistant Commissioner (not below the rank of 1st Class Stipendiary Magistrate).
    • (ii) Chief Presidency Magistrate / Additional Chief Presidency Magistrate/ Presidency Magistrate.
    • (iii) Revenue Officer not below the rank of Tehsildar.
    • (iv) Sub-Divisional Officer of the area where the candidate and / or his family resides.

Hope it helps on SSC OBC Certificate for SSC CGL/SSC CHSL/SSC MTS/SSC CPO and other SSC exams.

Last minute suggestion by -> All the willing candidates, please make sure that you have OBC certificate in hand before final application form. If you don’t have as per standards then go to Tehsildar’s office/Collector Office and get it done. Else your entire year will be vanished just because of one certificate.
