Who are the persons excluded from reservation as creamy layer.

n the case of Ashoka Kumar Thakur Vs. State of Bihar and others, , the exclusion of creamy layer from the Other Backward Citizens was again considered by the Apex Court in furtherance of its earlier decision in Indra Sawhney in which case there was agreement amongst eight out of nine Judges. It held that the occupants of the posts like IAS, IPS and Officers of All India Services rise quite high socially and such persons could no longer be socially disadvantaged. Their children get full opportunities to realize their potential and are in no way handicapped in the social life.

The doctrine of Creamy Layers in Indian job reservation

When Governments unreasonably refuse to eliminate creamy layers from the backward classes or when governments tend to include more and more castes in the list of Backward Classes without adequate data and inquiry, a stage will be reached soon when the whole system of reservation will become farcical and a negation of the constitutional provisions relating to reservations. The resistance of the creamy layer to get out of the lists is as bad as the clamour for entry into the quota system of various castes whose social status does not conform to the law decided by this Court. We earnestly hope that Constitutional provisions will not be converted into citadels for unjustified patronage.
