NEW DELHI: The format of caste certificate for Other Backward Class (OBC) has been revised to make it easier for them to get the benefit of the reservation, the Government said today.

Representations were being received from candidates belonging to OBC citing difficulty in getting the benefit of reservation, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh told Lok Sabha in a written reply.

Difficulties were being faced as in the caste certificate there was space for mentioning the name of the caste or community but no space was provided for indicating the specific resolution by which the said caste or community has been included in the central list of OBC, he said.

"The issue was examined in consultation with National Commission for Backward Classes and the format of OBC certificate has since been revised," the Minister said.
