Abstract

More and more evidence is coming up of the existence of communities which continue to lead a subhuman existence in spite of their eligibility for affirmative action. There is need for clarity about who the most deprived social groups are, and how they came to be so historically disadvantaged; the dregs or the bottom most layers which need urgent, multi-pronged attention of the state. Equally important is to debate whether some of the categories devised for affirmative action need refining and redefining.
