More castes in OBC central list added

The new additions will be made public after the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment issues a notification in this regard

New Delhi: Decks have almost been cleared to include more castes in the central list of Other Backward Castes (OBCs) with Union cabinet approving it for various states.

The new additions will be made public after the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment issues a notification in this regard.

Most of the additions in the list have come from Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.

"Inclusion of these communities in the central list of OBCs will enable them to avail benefits of reservation in the central government services as well as in the central education institutions, thus contributing to the goal of equity and inclusiveness," an official spokesperson said.

The Adrakhi Mahato caste of Bihar is among the new additions in the central list of OBC.

The ministry will, for the first time, notify the central list of OBCs for Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand, and also make amendments in the list in respect of four states Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka and Rajasthan and the Union Territory of Daman and Diu.

The changes have been made on the recommendation of the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC).

The NCBC had also approved a proposal to include the Gada caste of Uttar Pradesh in the central list of OBC for the state.

Central OBC Certificate from Delhi

I belong to Himachal Pradesh OBC caste Ghirath/Ghrit. My two children have got the OBC certificate of Delhi State on behalf of my OBC certificate which had been made in Himachal Pradesh. Now I want to have Central OBC Certificate for my two children.

On enquiring from DC(New Delhi), I was told that the said caste does not come under Central List. But in the HP State Central list, it exists at Sl.No. 19. I told them that this caste has been listed in the Central List of Himachal Pradesh. But they did not agree on that.

I want to have Central OBC Certificate for my two children made from Delhi from where Delhi State OBC certificate has been issued in 2011 by DC, New Delhi.

Pleas suggest what should I do to get the certificate for OBC made from Delhi Govt.

I shall be highly grateful to you. Awaiting your reply at the earliest.

Thanks & Regads.

Om Prakash
