Govt revises format of OBC caste certificate

PTI New Delhi | Updated on July 09, 2014

The format of the caste certificate for Other Backward Class (OBC) has been revised to make it easier for them to get the benefit of reservation, the Government said today.

Representations were being received from OBC candidates citing difficulty in getting the benefit of reservation, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh told Lok Sabha in a written reply.

Difficulties were being faced as the caste certificate had space for mentioning the name of the caste or community but no space for indicating the specific resolution by which the said caste or community has been included in the central list of OBC, he said.

“The issue was examined in consultation with the National Commission for Backward Classes and the format of the OBC certificate has since been revised,” the Minister said.
