This is a working paper and the project is part of a larger research agenda which attempts to understand inequalities within groups that are recognised as disadvantaged by the Indian state. Specific focus is the set of groups labeled as Mahadalits by the Government of Bihar, who are a subset of the SCs in the state.

Author(s) is particularly interested in whether programs for Mahadalits suffer from the same problems as past attempts at equalising opportunity through affirmative action.
