Book | Business Standard and NCAER

The paucity of high quality data in India has meant that innumerable government policies have been structured with inadequate data. Caste in a Different Mould corrects this anomaly as far as caste-based reservation is concerned. This is the first attempt to use a cross-country of sample to quantify the impact of education, urbanisation and occupation on the income levels of different caste groups. This volume goes into uncharted territory, opening up new avenues for debate, all with the aim of providing clarity on the vexed issue of caste-based inequality in India.
