Creamy layer

I am an employee  in a private sector having a gross annual income around 7 lakh. My father was in government sector employee (Doctor) but now retired. he is having annual income less than 6 lakhs. Am  I in creamy layer? Can I avail the facility of OBC reservation in government jobs?

Please let me know If my father have property in semi urban area, does it make any difference?


There are six rules to decide creamy layer for various categories.  The sons and daughter of parents who are Government servants, creamy layer is decided on the status (grade of service) and not on the salary income. Sons and daughters of direct recruit grade A or previous Class I officers are under creamy layer, all other are Non Creamy......


I think Yes, in your case depending on the date of retirement and the date of threshold raised.
