Abdul Kalam’s son will not have reservation…!!! Funniest headline ever !! July 20, 2006

Posted by gantech in Reservation Issues.

I am sorry and accept that I have not been quite closely following the happenings in the Quota issue….and hence this seems a surprise to me..

AFAIK.. the creamy layer clause wasn’t there in the first place..


I don’t know why IBNlive decided to highlight the fact that children of the President are excluded from the reserved category, when the last paragraph seems to be affecting a million more people. And what a comedy to have put Abdul Kalam’s photo.. who isn’t married in the first place.. !!!


Children of President, Vice-President and judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts fall under the ‘creamy layer’ among OBCs under the criteria fixed for exclusion from reservation in civil posts and services.

As per the criteria announced on Wednesday, children of members of the UPSC and State Public Service Commission, Chief Election Commissioner, Comptroller and Auditor
General of India and persons holding Constitutional positions of this nature also fall under the creamy layer category.

Under the criteria, persons having gross annual income of Rs 2.5 lakh or above or possessing wealth above the exemption limit as prescribed in the Wealth Act for a period of three consecutive years are also excluded.
