Query: About OBC creamy Layer 
Ans: To claim OBC reservation benefit, you need two certificates  i.e. the caste certificate and the creamy layer certificate. It should be in the format provided by SSC.
Note: Name of certificate Important thing to keep in mind OBC Castes fall in two categories namely 'State’s own list' and 'Central government’s list';, which are different. To apply in SSC Your caste MUST be in central list.
Query: ABOUT Non ­Creamy layer certificate 
Ans: Candidates claiming OBC status may note that certificate on creamy layer status should have been obtained within three years before the closing date for receipt of application. 
This depends on the income/status of your PARENTS (this is clearly mentioned in page 10 of the official notification), means this doesn’t depend on your own job/business OR your husband’s job/business. If your mom/dad is government employee then INCOME criteria doesn’t apply. 
(e.g. if dad is class3 employee, then it doesn’t matter whether he gets 6 lakhs or 7 lakhs. You’re still non-­cream layer. If your parents have private business, then income criteria applies. (Max. 6 Lakh rupees annual income)
 In short, make sure you’ve these certificates, else make trip to Tehsildar’s office/Collector Office/Jan­Seva Kendra and get the proper certificates. Otherwise, SSC will reject you at the last stage, during document verification and your entire year will be wasted for nothing.
