Other Backward Classes (OBC)



What is Other Backward Classes (or OBCs) ?

The OBCs in India are a group of castes officially recognized as being traditionally subject to exclusion, while still having a higher status than Scheduled Castes or Scheduled Tribes. OBCs comprise about half of India's population, and are entitled to 27% of the job reservations in Government employment and other benefits and concessions.



What are the different kinds of OBCs ?

The Government of India and State Government of Maharashtra has from time to time declared different communities and castes as OBCs.



Are East Indians included in list of OBCs ?

Recently the Maharashtra State Cabinet took a decision to include East Indian Christians and East Indian Catholics in the list of State OBCs. However, Central Government is yet to include East Indians in the category of OBCs. At present the Central Government list only includes Christians converted from Scheduled Castes and Christian Kolis in the list of OBCs.



When can one avail the benefits of OBCs under the State List ?

As soon as the decision to include East Indians in the OBC List of the State is published in the Maharashtra State Official Gazette and thereafter the OBC Caste Certificate is obtained.



What is the procedure required to be followed to obtain OBC Caste Certificate ?

A person intending to apply for OBC Certificate has to apply through his parents if alive or through any senior member of the family to Deputy District Collector or City District Collector as the case may be, through the Office of the Tahsildar ( Competent Authority ). Tahsildars Offices are situated at Old Custom House, Fort, Bandra (W), Andheri (W) Near Bhavan's College, Borivali (W), Kurla, Mulund etc. The preprinted application form ( in Marathi ) should be obtained from said offices and should be submitted along with necessary documentary evidences. Kindly affix Rs.5/- Court Fee stamp on the said application form. Please note that a Caste Certificate issued by any person, officer or authority other than the Competent Authority is invalid.



What is documentary evidence one needs to submit to obtain OBC Caste Certificate or the Validity Certificate ?

If a person is a permanent resident of a particular area/locality, then Caste Certificate issued by the Competent Authority of the same area/locality to any other person.

Copy of the Primary or Secondary School Leaving Certificate.

Copy of the extract of the Register for Primary or Secondary School, where the person was last studying, notifying his Religion or Caste.

If the person is in Government Service, then copy of service record to be provided.

Copy of Primary or Secondary School Leaving Certificate or the Birth or Death Certificate of the Father.

Copy of the Caste Certificate of the Father/Uncle/Cousin Brother or Sister/other elderly family members or copy of their Birth Certificate. Or if any of above persons are in Government service then, their service record notifying their Religion/Caste.

Copy of Ration Card as Proof of Residence.

A letter from the Registered Society of the Caste, if any.



What are benefits of OBC Caste Certificate ?

There are number of benefits one can avail. Certain percentage of seats are specifically reserved in all professional degree and diploma colleges for OBC Category viz Medicine, Engineering, Architecture. There are certain percentage of jobs also reserved in State Government, Municipal Corporations, Municipal Councils, Nagarpalika, State Government undertaking like S.T., MSEB, High Court and other Courts, Police, BEST etc. Seats are also reserved for contesting elections.



After obtaining OBC Caste Certificate from the Competent Authority, whether one can get reservation in education or job automatically ?

The State Government has constituted a Scrutiny Committee for verification of Caste Certificates issued by the Competent Authority. The office of the Scrutiny Committee is located at Konkan Bhavan, 6th Floor, Extension Building, Room No.71, New Bombay - 400 614. One has to carry the original OBC Caste Certificate and all supporting original documents which were submitted earlier while obtaining Caste Certificates from the Competent Authority. For the said purpose one has to make an application well in advance, in such form and in such manner as may be prescribed to the Scrutiny Committee for the verification of such Caste Certificates and issuance of a validity certificate. The students who wish to apply for Medicine, Engineering, Architecture etc. under the OBC quota are required to attach the copy of the caste certificate at the time of admission to the said courses. However, at the time of selection to the said courses, one needs to submit validity certificate. It is therefore recommended that those students who are studying in F.Y.J.C or Std. XI ( Science ) should apply to the Scrutiny Committee well before 30th November for the relevant year.



What are the various benefits and concessions given by the State Government to OBC's ?

Maharashtra State Other Backward Classes Finance and Development Corporation ( MSOBCFDC ) is a Government of Maharashtra undertaking Company under Social Justice, Welfare, Cultural Affairs Department. The Corporation has been established on 25.09.1998 with the objective of economic and development activities for the benefit of Other Backward Classes in the State and to the assist the weaker section of the target group in skill development and self-employment activities.

Default Re: validity of caste certificate

I am an obc candidate(having state Certificate of OBC of June 2000, But my caste falls in Central Govt list also). I passed Graduate Level Exam 2006 (Pre and mains) of Staff Selection Commission. But at the time of interview i.e. June 2008 SSC asked for a central list OBC Certificate. I rushed for it and concerned SDM issued (verified old certificate on Central Resolutions as the format issued by SSC) me an OBC Certificate on current date. But SSC wanted the Certificate of back date i.e. on or before 11 May2007. SSC officials denied my candidature as an OBC and asked me to sign an undertaking as a General Candidate. So I did. Now through RTI, SSC informed me that I got marks 404, and the cut off marks of the same exam for the Inspector in Central Excise was 382 (OBC). If SSC agreed on my candidature as OBC, then I would get the job. Please help me what should I do?
