Kottayam, Oct 3 (UNI) Nair Service Society (NSS), the powerful social organisation of the Nair community in Kerala, today criticised the Union Government for raising the income ceiling of the creamy layer of backward communities from the present Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 4.5 lakh for getting reservation benefits.
In a statement here, NSS General Secretary P K Narayana Panicker alleged that the decision went against social justice and Supreme Court directives.
The intention behind the decision was to circumvent the court directives which stated that not only social and educational backwardness but economic backwardness should also be taken into consideration on the reservation issue.
The decision would be beneficial to the affluent in the backward sections and detrimental to the poor, Mr Panicker said and alleged poltical motives behind it.
