For Income certificate in Kerala, the income of the family is provided. The income of the family includes the income of following members in the family.

  • Income of Applicant
  • Income of Spouse
  • Income of Parents
  • Income of Unmarried Sisters/Brothers
  • Income of Applicant's Step-Parents, if they are staying with the applicant.

The income of family doesn't involve the income of married children or siblings.

In certain cases, an individual income certificate is also provided as per the discretion of the Village Officer.

For Non - creamy layer certificate, Income here refers only to the income of the parents and not the candidate’s income.

The creamy layer status of a candidate is determined on the basis of the status of his/her parents and not on the basis of his/her own status or income or that of his/her spouse (husband or wife). Therefore, while determining the creamy layer status of a person, the status or the income of the candidate himself or of his/her spouse (husband or wife) shall not be taken into account.

In short, the candidate’s income is not considered for determining the Non-Creamy Layer Status of OBCs.
