Author(s): Sudarshan Nagamurthi
Abstract: The scheduled castes were depressed, suppressed and discriminated in society since immemorial days. As such, to bring social equality, the Indian Constitution and the Government has made all efforts. It is essential to know about the social equality achieved by these castes and problems faced by them. For this purpose, a sociological survey of scheduled castes was made by interviewing 450 scheduled castes living in Kalaburagi city, who were formerly from untouchable communities. It is concluded that though there is development of scheduled castes, they have not achieved social equality completely.
