Haryana has said children of those earning over Rs 6 lakh annually will be part of the creamy layer, adding that it will be the sum of all sources of income.
The Haryana government, last week, included non-economic criteria to define the ‘creamy layer’ for granting reservation to OBCs in government jobs and admissions to education institutions.
This announcement was made after the Supreme Court judgement in August 2021, that set aside the criteria being followed by Haryana, terming it “flagrant” and the result of a “grave error”.
To assess how this Rs 6 lakh is to be calculated, the Haryana government has retained the contents of an August 2018 notification that said it will be the sum of all sources of income.
The Supreme Court asked the state government to issue a fresh notification within three months of its orders, and the 17 November notification followed.
Among those included in the creamy layer are children of those in constitutional posts like the President of India, the Vice-President of India, judges of the Supreme Court and high courts, chairman and members of the UPSC, and state public service commissions, MPs and MLAs.
Children of Group A and B officers (Class I and II) across India in central and state services or employees of public sector undertakings are also in the creamy layer.
Children of those in the armed and paramilitary forces are included too. Children of a family that owns land more than that permitted under the Haryana Ceiling on Holdings Act also are in the creamy layer. The Act governs the amount of land an individual can own in the state.
