A STUDY OF SOCIAL EXCLUSION & ITS IMPLICATION

Dr. Pravin Ransure

Abstract


A caste system is the major feature of Indian society, it is not only reflected in social life of Indian people but also economic and political behaviour of people.  Caste is the identity of a person in Hindu society.  In India, exclusion or inclusion in the economic activities such as production, distribution or any gainful job to a particular person depend on his caste.  In social science literature the concept of social exclusion is defined as ‘the process through which individuals belonging to some groups are wholly or partially excluded from full participation in the society in which they live’.  The unfavorable inclusions with unequal treatment may carry the same adverse effects as unfavorable exclusion.
