(5) To get OBC reservation in central posts or central admissions like IAS, IPS, BANK, RALWAYS, IIT,
NIT(AIEEE), AIIMS, AGRICULTURE, MEDICAL COLLEGES & CENTRAL UNIVERSIY etc. a separate OBC
certificate is r equired on the basis of cen tral list of OBCs issued by Govt of India in central format
(available in every Employment News). As some of the state OBC castes are not included in central list of
OBCs & at many places there is a differenc e between state & c entral creamy layer criteria, the state OBCs
certificates are not allowed in central res ervation..
