Defining Creamy Layer?

According to The Hindu, Government of India has begun to define the creamy layer amongst OBCs. The purpose of this exercise is unclear, but it is a very small step in the right direction.

This exercise should not be limited to just OBCs but should cover all reserved categories and they should be excluded from quota benefits at all levels. This will prove to be a herclulean task as the likes of Dr. Ramadoss are opposed to this very concept.


  1. Right step. The list quite overarching.

    No indication as to how this 'definition' will be used.. we will have just wait and watch..

  3. I wish the quotas, reservations, etc systems are abolished and equal opportunity is given to every one irrespective of caste,creed,religion,age,affiliation,economic status,etc. When will India think everyone as Indians with equal opportunity instead of dividing people by various categories? It is time the tenth biggest economy in the World becomes 10th least narrow minded people in the World.

    Politicians thrive on 'quotas' and I don't see it going away anytime soon..
