Department of Personnel & Training
North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 30th May. 2014
The Chief Secretaries of all the State Governments/Union Territories
Subject: Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate
The Government of India had issued instructions on 8th September, 1993 vide DoPT OM. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) providing for reservation to Other Backward Classes in the services and posts under the Government of India. The format of the Caste Certificate was prescribed vide Annexure A of the O.M. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) dated 15th November 1993. In the said format, the then Ministry of Welfare’s Resolution No. 12011/68/93-BCC(C) dated 10th September 1993 was mentioned, which contained the list of castes and communities treated as OBC’s till that time. Since then, a large number of castes and communities have been added to the Central List of OBCs through various resolutions of the Ministry of Social Jusiice and Empowerment. The details of the resolutions subsequent to the Resolution dated 10th September 1993 do not find mention in the existing format. The said format also prescribes that the certificate issuing authority should certify that the candidate does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid OM. dated 8.9.1993.
2. Representations have been received in this Department wherein candidates belonging to OBC Communities have reportedly faced difficulty in getting the benefits of reservation. This is because of the fact that in the caste certificate issued by the concerned district authorities, although the name of the caste/community is mentioned in the certificate, the specific resolution by which the said caste/community has been included in the Central Listof OBCs is not indicated.
3. Keeping in view such problems faced by the candidates, this issue was examined in consultation with the National Commission for Backward Classes and it has been decided to revise the existing format of OBC Caste Certificate. A copy of the revised format is enclosed(Anuexure). All the certificate issuing authorities are requested to invariably mention the details of the Resolution (Number and Date) by which the castec/community of the candidate has been included in the Central List of OBCs and also to ensure that he/she does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid O.M. dated 8.9.1993 as amended from time to time.
4. I am to request that the revised format of the Certificate may please be brought to the notice of authorities under the State Governments/Union Territories who are empowered to issue the Caste Certificate.

Modi govt. may implement performance-based incentives for govt employees
New Delhi: Following its mantra of maximum governance and minimum government, Prime Minister Narendra Modimay implement performance-based incentives schemes for central government employees.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) is slated to give a detailed presentation on Performance-Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS), which was recommended by Sixth Pay Commission and accepted by the UPA government, to the prime minister soon, officials said. PRIS could not be implemented by the UPA government which had given its “in-principle” approval.
DoPT is likely to outline the salient features of the scheme aimed at improving governance in its presentation to Modi. “The detailed guidelines will be put in place after prime minister gives his go-ahead to it,” a senior DoPT official said.
As per the draft guidelines framed during UPA’s tenure, performance-related incentive will be payable taking into account the performance of the organisation and employees during the period under consideration. There are about 50 lakh central government employees.
“PRIS may prove to be a big game changer for improving governance and delivering maximum output. The prime minister may incorporate some new features,” the official said.
