quesCan I retain General Status for my children if I Get married to an OBC

My cousin is a general category female and her boyfriend is an OBC. Now she wants that after marriage she does not convert to OBC category.

Some lawyers say that if she doesn't apply for a OBC certificate, she will stay in general category.

Also, she wants that her children after marriage do not get an OBC certificate but are in the General category. Can this be possible? If yes, how?

  • ans
    Once your cousin is married she will come under the category of an OBC but she cannot take the benefit of reservation for OBC by virtue of inter caste  marriage. 

    Now regarding your second query,

    The children at the time of birth will have the category of the father i.e. OBC in your case,so once a child is  born they will automatically come under the OBC category. 

    Therefore in case of your cousin if she desires she may not apply for OBC certificate, but for her children she can apply for certificate only if she desires to take benefit of OBC category.
