Scheduled Caste Panchayat Pradhans in India: A Study of Western Uttar Pradesh by Vijay Kumar



Caste panchayats, based on caste system in India, are caste-specific juries of elders for villages or higher-level communities in India. They are distinct from village panchayats in that the latter, as statutory bodies, serve all villagers regardless of caste, although they operate on the same principles The term panchayat implies a body of five (Sanskrit: Panch) individuals, although the number may vary in practice. The number is kept odd to ensure there is no tie when a decision is made  . Kumar, Vijay (1989). Scheduled caste panchayat pradhans in India: A study of western Uttar Pradesh. p. 183.

INTRODUCTION The Khap1 Panchayat, like the caste system and joint family systems, is a traditional institution engaged primarily in dispute resolution and in regulating the behaviour of individuals or groups in rural North India. While the smaller issues are taken up by the village panchayats, the Khap Panchayats resolve disputes of wider concern within their operative territory. Singh15 observed that in an Uttar Pradesh village, when a village caste panchayat failed to satisfy a faction, the aggrieved party could summon a bigger caste panchayat of seven, 12, 24, 42 or even 84 villages. He quoted a case of a factional split among the Julahas (weavers) over the question of dowry, for which a caste panchayat of 84 villages was called and the matter resolved. After the detailed history of the case has been presented, the other Khap pradhans are invited to put their views before the meeting.

Caste Relations in Independent India. The Republic of India became independent on August 15, 1947. India's new government instituted laws to protect the Scheduled castes and tribes which included both the untouchables and groups living traditional lifestyles. Thus, over the past sixty years, a person's caste has in some ways, become more of a political category than a social or religious one. Sources: Ali, Syed.
