    the different categories are=
    a)general/oc(other clases)=its for all categories.
    b)OBC=other backward classes

    Hi friend,
    There are a lot of difference in general and obc quota in upsc exam. The main difference is age relaxation because OBC candidate get 3 year age relaxation and also get more attempt for exam instead of general quota.

    thanks

    Dear Friend


    UPSC is the Union Public service Commission which organises lots of examination every year.

    There is nothing to worry about the difference between the General and Obc quota in UPSC exams.First of all there is relaxation in age given to obc rather than general and in no of attempts:


    For example ,in case of civil services examinations:

    >>For general candidates,the age limit is 21-30 years.Relaxation of three years to obc that is their age limit is 21-33 years.

    >>In case of no of attempts,general candidates get four chances to appear for the examination and obc get seven chances.

    Also the reservation in UPSC civil services examinations is as per Government of India Policy that is :

    For OBC: 27%

    For SC:15%

    For ST:7.5%

    Hope the information helps you.


    all the best

    Re: What is the difference between General and OBC quota in UPSC exam?

    Dear as per my knowledge there are some minor differences for both General and OBC category candidates in UPSC exams which are as :

    >> In UPSC exams and all other government sector competitive exams, there is no provision or relaxation for General category candidates but there is a provision of relaxation for OBC category candidates in government sector exam which is - 3 years upper age relaxation for OBC category candidates but nothing for general category candidates

    >> Qualifying marks - OBC category candidates get qualified in any competitive exams with less marks than general category as a general category candidate need about 55% marks in preliminary exam to be qualified but a OBC category candidate need about 51% marks to get qualified

    >> OBC category candidate may attempt any UPSC exam - 7 times but a general category candidate may attempt this exam only for 4 times

    >> There are some reserved seats or vacancies for SC/ST and OBC category candidates in every competitive exams which can not be distributed to over qualified or educated general category candidates but for if you have more marks than general category candidates and belongs to SC or ST or OBC then you would get the seat or job of general category candidates means general seats are for all.

    If you are preparing for IPS officer exam then you should be prepared well for this exam because the preliminary is also tough to be qualified but if you are prepared well then you may easily get qualified in this exam

    All the best

    Hello friend,

    There are a lot of difference in general and OBC quota in UPSC exam. General candidate did not have any reservation of posts. They also not get relaxation of age and number of attempts. I will make you clear that OBC candidates have 27% of seats reserved out total requirement and they also get 3 year age relaxation instead of General quota. They also get more attempts to write the paper as general candidates.

    Thanks

    Difference between General and OBC

    The Central Government of India classifies some of its citizens based on their social and economic condition

    SC-Schedule Cast
    ST-Schedule Tribe
    General
    OBC -Other Backward Class.


    The OBC list presented by the commission is dynamic (castes and communities can be added or removed) and will change from time to time depending on social, educational and economic factors.
    For example, the OBCs are entitled to 27% reservations in public sector employment and higher education.
    In the constitution, OBCs are described as "socially and educationally backward classes", and government is enjoined to ensure their social and educational development.

    In the general category falls the upper cast which has been constituted and categorized by the Government of India. The do not enjoy the same benefit as OBC.

    Also the reservation in UPSC civil services examinations is as per Government of India Policy that is :

    For OBC: 27%

    For SC:15%

    For ST:7.5%


    All the Best ....!!!!
