    In which OBC category I fall if the family income is high?

    If family income is high than,then i should go to open category or what? Hope you are getting my point of confusion among the both layers of OBC.

    See there are two categories in OBC.

    -Noncreamy layer

    -Creamy layer

    The benefits of reservation and other relaxations as per rules of Government of India is only given to candidates that belong to OBC noncreamy

    layer category.

    If your family income that is income of your mother and father is more than the slab decided that is 4.5 lakhs than you belong to creamy layer

    category.

    Other wise you belong to noncreamy category.

    So if you belong to creamy layer than there won't be any difference in open or OBC category as you won't be getting any benefit of reservation.

    OBC are categorized as:
    >> OBC-Creamy Layer
    >> OBC-Non Creamy Layer

    If you parents annual income is less than Rs 4.5 lakhs per annum than you belong to OBC-Non Creamy layer and you can avail the benefit of the OBC certificate

    But if your parents annoual income is more than 4.5 lakhs per annum than you belong to OBC -Creamy Layer and in that case you will not get the benefit of OBC certificate and its better in that case to apply as General Candidates
