The caste system is arguably the most distinctive feature in Indian society. The Indian population is divided into four hierarchical classes or Varna’s with large sub population of untouchables excluded entirely from the system. Recent genetic evidence indicates that this rule has been followed for over 2,000 years. Spatial segregation on caste lines with in the village results in a high degree of local social connectedness with caste clusters in distant villages and select urban locations linked to each other through marriage over many generations. Under the effect of certain intense variables, caste system is experiencing extraordinary changes in modern India. The rapid improvement of transportation and correspondence are additionally in charge of the breaking down of Caste system to some degree. The nullification of different social issues which are made by Caste System in Indian culture is the principal point of the social change development. Indian caste system is profoundly influenced by the political development. The rigid barriers of caste not only practice the most pungent form of exclusion but also regulate economic and social life. The caste systems fundamental characteristics of fixed civil, cultural and economic rights for each caste with restrictions for change, imply forced exclusion of one’s caste to from undertaking the occupation of other castes.
