While, speaking as the Chief Guest at the Sammelan, the Chief Minister announced that the annual income limit for creamy layer which currently is Rs. 6 lakh has now been increased to Rs. 8 lakh, similar to the centre government, providing significant benefits in employment for the OBC community.

He said that following the consideration of the Haryana State Backward Classes Commission, this increased limit will be implemented in state government jobs. Besides this, similar to the central government, income from salary and agriculture sources will not be included in this limit, said Sh. Nayab Singh.

Meanwhile, the announcement is set to benefit lakhs of people belonging to the OBC community.

The Chief Minister further announced that the reservation for backward classes in Group-A and Group-B posts, currently at 15 percent, will be increased to 27 percent, in line with the central government’s policy. Besides this, the backlog of vacancies for Backward Class ingroup-A and B will be filled on a priority basis, with preparations underway for a special recruitment drive, he said.

To ensure OBC youth receive employment opportunities smoothly, the Chief Minister announced that a 27 percent reservation will also be implemented in the recruitment done through Haryana Kaushal Rozgar Nigam.

Sh. Nayab Singh said that it is a matter of pride that Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi is fully vigilant about protecting the interests of the OBC community. He said that the OBC community is not being deprived of their rights, and both the central and state governments are continuously implementing schemes to give full respect and recognition to the OBC community.

The Chief Minister said that over the past ten years, the government has fulfilled its responsibility to benefit the OBC community at every level in Haryana. The Prime Minister, Sh. Modi's vision of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, and Sabka Prayas’ has empowered people by connecting even the last person in society through various schemes, he said.

He said that the central government has taken significant steps towards the overall development of not only the OBC community but also the country's backward areas by declaring them aspirational districts, with Nuh district in Haryana included in the central government's aspirational plan, where continuous development schemes are being provided.

The Chief Minister further shared that the Haryana government is completely supporting the education of OBC children by providing scholarships ranging from Rs. 12, 000 to Rs. 20, 000 to ensure quality education. The government is also focusing on the skill development of the OBC community. Besides this, Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi has also allocated a budget of Rs. 13, 000 crores under the Bhagwan Vishwakarma Scheme to provide training in 18 trades, he said.

Sh. Nayab Singh further informed that under this scheme, welfare programs have been initiated to encourage the OBC community to pursue their traditional occupations. He informed that during the training, financial assistance of Rs. 500 per day is being provided to the OBC trainees, and upon completing the course, a kit worth Rs.15, 000 is also being given.

The Chief Minister expressed happiness that the benefits provided to the OBC community by the central and state governments over the past ten years surpass those given by previous opposition governments. The present state government has played a significant role in the upliftment of every section of society, giving full respect and recognition to the OBC community during its ten years tenure, said Sh. Nayab Singh.
