The question Does Lingayat Comes under OBC in Central List does not have a one-word answer. Lingayats are comprised of many sub-castes. Some fall under OBC and some under SC. There are also subcastes in Lingayats which doesn’t have a reservation and falls under OC.
In this post, I’m sharing details of the Lingayat castes that have OBC reservation. This is according to the central list. So if you are applying for any central government post like UPSC, SSC, NEET exam, Bank Exams you have to check in this list. The list mentioned here is based on the central list(September 2018). You can verify it in ncbc.nic.in
The central OBC list should be verified according to the state concerned. Eg: Caste Klingon in Karnataka may get OBC status but the same caste Klingon in Tamilnadu may fall under OC.
The Central OBC list mentioned here is associated with Karnataka. If you are Lingayat Uppara from Karnataka you will get OBC status for Central Government jobs.
Does Veerashaiva Lingayats comes under OBC in Central List?
No, Veerashaiva Lingayats does not falls under OBC category. In the state of Karnataka they belong to BC but in centre list they come under General Category and not under OBC. For a very long period they are claiming for OBC reservation in Centre list. Recently in 2019 Central government rejected their plea.

Yes, Veerashaiva Lingayats come under OBC. Veerashaiva Lingayat is a common name for Lingayats. There are many sub-categories within Veerashaiva Lingayats.
Names which have been mentioned in this list can claim OBC reservation. If you belong to Lingayat other than mentioned above you can’t claim reservation.
We’re confused Initially you told that veerashaiva lingayath comes under OBC in central later your telling it’s not comes which is correct and
I’m veerashaiva lingayath (3B) in state.
sorry for unclear words. Now I hope I have made it clear. Veerashaiva Lingayats do not fall under OBC ambit.
Veerashiva lingayath BC D in AP and TELENGANA, but not in OBC Central list, so can I eligible for EWS reservation for Central exams
Yes, you can claim EWS provided you have economic criteria.

No. You should have any one of the above-mentioned sub-castes. ‘Lingayat’ alone wouldn’t get OBC.
Does pamchamsali lingayat comes under obc?
No. Central Government OBC list doesn’t contain Pamchamsali in it.
Sir my case is Lingaayata Banajiga but In my Documents it is Veerashiva lingayata can I mention now sub caste or either I’ll get Obc for Upsc exams in veera shiva lingayata 3B category
If your mentioned caste as per the document is not in the central OBC list, then you won’t be provided with any OBC certificate. So make sure of it. Then apply for OBC with the correct caste name mentioned in your state caste certificate.
In my Documents it’s Veera shaiva lingayata ..does not mentioned sub caste ..my brother had subcaste mention in in documents ..I belong to OBC category which mentioned above ..How can I change now?? Can I change now?
