Abstract

Caste has been an enigma to the modern thinkers. According to the Chambers Dictionary, it is a social in India and exclusive social class. It means that it is limited to India and to the Hindu religion only and to no other country or religion, in the world. It is a hoary institution and infraclass is very complex. Caste is a system of social organization found in old India and continuing to the present day. The membership in a caste is hereditary and this is fixed for life. The scheduled caste is characterized by the lowest social status. From time immemorial the scheduled  castes suffered from social injustice and exploitation so as to prevent them from rising above. They were denied entry in to several occupations which were well paid and the field of their activities was restricted to unclean and mental jobs. They had no access to education. The road to knowledge was closed for them. Thus they remained socially, educationally and economically backward. This paper tries to analyse the origin and development of scheduled caste of Assam and suggestion for development of scheduled caste households of Assam.
