Caste based discrimination

What is caste discrimination?

Caste discrimination involves massive violations of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. Caste-affected communities are denied a life in dignity and equality. The concept of “Social exclusion” in social science literature is of recent origin. Social exclusion is a complex and multidimensional concept having social, cultural, political and economic ramifications.

Discrimination on the basis of caste, locality, social/ economical background or gender is prohibited. The Prevention of Caste-based Discrimination Committee shall understand the terms of the letter from UGC in words and spirit, and initiate continuous actions to ensure that no official or faculty member indulge in any kind of discrimination against any community or category of citizen, faculty or staff members. Sensitizing officials/ faculty members of the campus while dealing with such cases would also be the responsibility of the committee. As per the letter from the University Grants Commission, it was informed that the Officials/ faculty members should desist from any act of discrimination against SC/ ST/ OBC citizen on grounds of their social origin.
