I am not sure whether I fulfill the criteria for getting benefit under OBC category. What shall I do?
The onus of proving that you are eligible to get the concession of belonging to OBC (non-creamy layer) rests on you. Couple of suggestions:
A: Checkout the latest central list of OBCs published by the National
Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC). The relevant link ishttp://ncbc.nic.in/backwardclasses/index.htmlIt. For getting the benefit of reservation, the caste/ sub-caste/community essentially has to be in the
central list. If the caste you belong to appears in a state list but not in the
central list, you are not eligible for getting the reservation benefits.
B. Be sure that you do not belong to creamy layer. Your OBC certificate must
also have a clear mention that you belong to non creamy layer.
C.. OBC certificate has to be as per the proper format prescribed by Govt. of
India (available in our website). In case your certificate is too old and not as
per format, please gets a new one issued by a competent authority.
At the time of verification of the caste certificate at our end, at the time of
recruitment or at any stage after that, if it is found out that the candidate has
obtained reservation benefits by submitting, false/ incorrect certificate/information;
he/she would not be considered for further selection process/ be terminated from
the service of Indian Oil immediately
