The ‘Creamy Layer’ is Associated with
Option1 is the right answer.
The creamy layer is a term used in Indian politics to refer to the relatively wealthier and better educated members of the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) who are not eligible for government sponsored educational and professional benefit programs. The term was introduced by the Sattanathan Commission in 1971, which directed that the “creamy layer” should be excluded from the reservations (quotas) of civil posts and services granted to the OBCs.
The “creamy layer” concept is currently meant only for the OBCs. This concept is currently not applied to the scheduled castes category and scheduled tribes category.
