What is the creamy layer?
The creamy layer is a term used in Indian politics to refer to the relatively wealthier and better educated members of the OBCs who are not eligible for government sponsored educational and professional benefit programs.

So basically, the creamy layer bars the wealthy among OBCs from reservation benefit on the basis of family income. The layer ensures that the benefits reach the deserving people, who need them, rather than the ones who are financially and socially well off.
