While MOBC Minister Md Allaudin Khan claimed that there is no validity period for an OBC certificate, O Ibobi who is also leader of the House intervened saying that OBC certificates do have validity periods.
Responding to U Deben’s query, MOBC Minister Allaudin stated that an applicant or a candidate would remain in the status of OBC until and unless his/her annual income exceeds Rs 4.50 lakhs.
There would be no change in his or her status if the annual income mentioned at the time of filling up forms does not change, Allaudin stated.
However, as U Deben continued his queries, the Chief Minister intervened and clarified that OBC certificates have their validity periods.
The Chief Minister further informed the House that people whose annual income does not exceed Rs 4.50 lakhs may obtain OBC certificates.
Stating that this maximum income for an OBC applicant was fixed in 2004, Ibobi explained that OBC certificates would remain valid as long as there is no change in the annual income.
However, OBC certificates which are older than three years are invalid. Earlier maximum annual income ceiling for OBC was fixed at Rs 2.50 lakhs, Ibobi stated.
