Scheduled castes are important groups of our Indian society and they have played an important role in the process of Nation building. But unfortunately they were isolated and segregated on the basis of Chatur Varna system and religious doctrine of Hindu society.. The practice of untouchability in Ancient India has excluded them from the process of nation building. India has not exploited the potential Human resources of scheduled castes for the prosperity and development of India. Hindu society enslaved them for centuries by denying fundamental human rights.

Republic of India was formed on 26th Jan. 1950. It is always said that there is unity in the country. Though it is true to a large extent, the fact is that the Indian society is divided into several religions, caste, language & tribal groups. Caste is the most dominating factor, which has affected the social, cultural economic and political fields in the country.
