Will the Minister of PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS be pleased to state:-
(a) whether the Government has revised the format of OBC caste certificate in view of the difficulties being faced by people belonging to OBCs in getting caste certificates /benefits of reservation; and

(b) if so, the details thereof?
ANSWER
Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office. (DR. JITENDRA SINGH) 

(a) & (b): Yes, Madam. Representations were being received wherein candidates belonging to OBC community were reportedly facing difficulty in getting the benefit of reservation because of the fact that in the format of the caste certificate, although there was space for mentioning the name of the caste/community but no space was provided for indicating the specific resolution by which the said caste/community has been included in the Central List of OBC. The issue was examined in consultation with National Commission for Backward Classes and the format of OBC caste certificate has since been revised vide Department of Personnel & Training’s O.M. No. 36036/2/2013- Estt.(Res.) dated 30th May, 2014.
