Every candidate seeking reservation in central government posts and services as OBC candidate is required to submit a certificate confirming his/her status as OBC and also produce Non-creamy layer status issued by an authority mentioned in DOPT Office Memorandum No.36012/22/93-Est(SCT) dated 15.11.1993. The Non-creamy Layer Certificate would be applicable to OBC candidateswho are covered under Income/Wealth Test criterion. The income limit is decided on the basis of income earned during three previous financial years preceding the year
of appointment.

To illustrate, the validity of non-creamy layer certificate issued
during any month of the financial year 2016-17 covering 3 preceding financial years
viz. 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 be accepted by the concerned authorities for any
appointments or recruitments which would be valid during the period April 2016 to
March 2017. The appointing authorities would accept production of self-attested
photo copy of the Non-creamy layer certificate, subject to verification of the original
Non-creamy layer certificate, as is the practice being followed for verification of other
original documents.
