News related to OBC in India
« on: August 04, 2011, 04:27:32 PM »
ew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said conversion of seats reserved for students belonging to the Other Backward Classes (OBC) to general category seats in central educational institutions was not permissible.

This was said by a bench of Justice Mr RV Raveendran and Mr AK Patnaik while reserving its verdict on a petition by P V Indiresan, former director of Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai. The 7 September 2010 verdict of the Delhi High Court has been challenged by this petitioner, which said that the minimum eligibility marks for admission under the OBC category would be 10 per cent below the minimum eligibility marks fixed for general category students.

Mr. Justice Raveendran said that the process to take away the OBC seats for conversion into general category seats was not permissible. This was said by the court when senior Counsel KK Venugopal, appearing for the petitioner, said that in case the court decided the issue against him then it must ensure that 50 per cent seats earmarked for general category students were not encroached upon by OBC candidates even if some of them entered a university by taking the merit route.

When a lawyer referred to Mr. Justice Raveendran's observation that rules of the game couldn't be changed after its start, the judges said what they meant was that it had to be decided in advance at what point the process of the admission of the OBC students under the reserved category would start and what would be the cut-off marks.

Mr. Venugopal sought to make a distinction between the reservation for the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and the OBCs and said that they could not be placed at par because social ostracism suffered by the former did not visit the latter. But Mr Justice Patnaik said the law used the same language for extending reservation to the OBC as it did in the case of SC/ST, and it cannot be interpreted differently.

OBC cuts interest rates by up to 0.5%
PTI | Apr 15, 2012, 01.53PM IST

NEW DELHI: Ahead of RBI's annual credit policy announcement, state-owned Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC) has slashed fixed deposit rates by up to 0.5 per cent, a development which could signal a reversal of the high interest rate regime.

The bank reduced interest rate on fixed deposits with maturity between 1-2 years by 0.25 per cent to 9.50 per cent, OBC said in statement.

For term deposits worth Rs 15 lakh to Rs 1 crore with maturity between 46-90 days, the new interest rate will be 0.5 per cent lower than the existing 9 per cent, it said.
The new rates would be effective from Monday. Meanwhile, the bank has already reduced base rate or minimum lending rate by a marginal 0.1 per cent effective April 11.

The bank has reduced the base rate to 10.65 per cent from 10.75 per cent, the statement said.

"We have taken a bold decision ahead of the RBI policy. There are some events in the last few months that have enabled us to take this decision and pass on the cost benefit to our customers," OBC chairman and managing director S L Bansal said.

The reduction in base rate will make all kind of loans, including housing and auto loans cheaper by at least 0.1 per cent.

Further the bank has increased its rate of interest for deposits applicable for senior citizens from 0.5 per cent to 0.6 per cent over and above the card rate.

Interestingly, some of the large public sector banks like Bank of Baroda and Bank of India raised their deposit rates upwards last month.

Increase in the fixed deposit rates by these banks was due to tight liquidity situation.

To improve liquidity in the system, RBI in March had reduced the cash reserve ratio (CRR)-- the portion of deposits banks require to keep with the central bank -- from 5.5 per cent to 4.75 per cent.

With the reduction, the central bank pumped in Rs 48,000 crore in the economy.

OBC creamy layer ceiling may go up to R6 lakh a year

NEW DELHI: There will be more competition among those belonging to the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) as the government is set to increase the creamy layer ceiling from R4.5 lakh to R6 lakh per annum.

Soon, members of the OBC families earning R6 lakh or more per annum may not be eligible to apply for vacancies or seats reserved for them in government jobs and premier institutes. The government has reserved 27 % seats for OBCs.

The proposal likely to come before the cabinet on Thursday is aimed at making the creamy layer realistic in terms of rising income and inflation. Therefore, the government has tabulated the new creamy layer on basis of Consumer Price Index of December 2011.

The second attempt is to ensure that there are more eligible candidates to apply for vacant seats in premier institutes and government jobs.

Seats for OBCs in government jobs have remained vacant despite special recruitment drives. Also, as per the University Grants Commission, around 30% seats reserved for OBCs in centrally-funded higher education institutions have remained vacant.

In March 2008, the government had increased the ceiling from R2.5 lakh to R4.5 lakh per annum with a similar aim. But that did not happen since the government believes that average income has increased by around 33% in the last four years. Hence, many OBCs were removed from the quota ambit.

The government has, however, rejected the recommendation of the OBC commission to increase the ceiling to around R12 lakh per annum.

In another inclusive bid, the cabinet may consider a prematric scholarship for Scheduled Caste (SC) students belonging to Classes 9 and 10.

If approved, the government will pay for tuition fee and books of meritorious SC students.

Cabinet defers move to raise income cap for OBC benefits

NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet has deferred the decision to raise the income ceiling to avail of OBC quota benefits in jobs and education.

The ministry of social justice and empowerment's proposal to increase t he ceiling from present R4.5 lakh to R6 lakh could not be approved due to demand from a section of ministers to further raise the limit.

According to sources, a few OBC ministers opined the ceiling should be higher to widen the ambit.

Though t he ceiling was raised from R2.5 lakh to R4.5 lakh in 2008, many of the OBC vacancies were left unfilled in central educational institutions.

In another Cabinet decision, the government reached out to the students from SC and ST communities. Under a new scheme approved by the cabinet committee on economic affairs, poor SC, ST students of classes IX and X will get a monthly scholarship of R350 (hostellers) and R150 (day scholars).

While t he scholarship is payable for 10 months in an academic year, an annual sum of R750 for day scholars, R1,000 for hostellers would be given for books etc. To avail of the benefit, income of parents should be under R2 lakh per annum.

The CCEA also approved inclusion of 22 additional districts under the Backward Regions Grant Fund '    ¯ presently catering to 250 districts.

It also included four new districts '    ¯ Sitamarhi and West Champaran in Bihar and Chhindwara and Singrauli of Madhya Pradesh '    ¯ under t he Integrated Action Plan meant for naxal-hit districts.

The CCEA also approved a 16% hike in support price for paddy at R1,250 per quintal for kharif season. It raised the MSP for oil seeds and pulses by 37%. The CCEA deferred a decision on increasing retail prices of urea by 10%.

RECRUITMENT UNDER OBC CATEGORY..Teachers' merit list to be released soon
Chandigarh, February 4
After getting a clarification from the social welfare department, the UT education department has begun the process to release the provisional and final merit list of 48 Junior Basic Teachers (JBT) and 18 Trained Graduate Teachers (TGT) under OBC category.

The part of recent recruitment of the contractual TGT and JBT teachers, these posts were withheld since the department was in doubt over the entitlement of some backwards castes under the OBC reservation, for which it sought the written reply from the UT social welfare department about a month ago.

Now the official communication by social welfare officials confirmed that the UT would entertain only those castes, which exist in both the central governments reservation lists as well as UTs own list.

Those OBCs, who do not exist in either of the list, would not be entertained for the reservation of civil posts in the UT.

The department, it is learnt, received job applications from several OBC applicants which was mentioned in the central OBC list but it had not corresponding reference in the state list. Such castes were "Saini¯, "Nais¯, "Bhuhalia Lohar¯, and "Gadaria¯ and several others. As many as 12 castes were under scanner.

"It is because of these doubts that the final merit list of several posts OBC category were withheld. But since the recent written communication from the concerned department have given their clarification on this issue, the department will soon issue the merit list left over posts, based on the candidates entitled for the reservation, said a senior official of the department.

Further, there was issue pertaining to one or two castes, which although were there in both the lists, but their spelling did not match with the candidates certificates.

On this, the department of the social welfare department has clarified that the cast with different spelling could be sub-castes or synonym of some castes.

Therefore those castes whose spellings are not matched with the certificate of the candidates would not be entertained also, said officials.

Reference of the reservation policy of the Chandigarh Administration formulated under Union Governments directions in 2003 has been used to remove the confusion over the issue, said officials.

Meanwhile, the recruitment of rest of the JBT and TGT teachers are almost complete. Last week, the department gave appointment letter to over 500 JBT teachers from general and other reserved category.
