Creamy layer income limit may increased to 7 lakh

NEW DELHI: The Centre may revise 'creamy layer' for OBCs at around or less than Rs 7 lakh per annum, diluting the existing ceiling of Rs 4.5 lakh which will bring more backward members in the reservation net and satisfy OBC satraps who resent the eligibility bar for quotas.

However, despite the hike in the review carried out every four years, the revised 'creamy layer' would be much less than Rs 12 lakh annual income that the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) had recommended - arguing that value of Rs 100 in 1993 has dwindled to Rs 29 in 2011, which made income limits like Rs 4.5 lakh redundant.
