Published By: Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin | Published Date: March, 01 , 2009

Explains how the social difference between the caste system and different tribes was contained even through the caste system was officially abolished. Presents a general model of social mobility based on a model developed by Tsiddon and Rubenstein. Critically examines the data available to test the model of social mobility within the Indian context. Shows how Indian Politics, promoting a change in social imbalances, may influence the model and hence reduce inequality between different social groups.
