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.
