India is famous for its complex social systems. Indian society is multifaceted to an extent perhaps unknown in any other civilizations. Virtually no generalization made about Indian society is valid for all of the nation’s multifarious groups. Comprehending the complexities of Indian social structure has challenged scholars and other observers over many decades. The Indian society stands divided into several castes and the position of each caste is based on traditional importance. The position of each individual is related to the position of his caste group and right at the time of his birth he becomes a member of either a high caste or a low caste. Social Stratification in India has been basically a caste-based social stratification. It involves the presence of social relations based upon a system characterised by several castes. The Indian society is usually described as a caste-based society. This valuable book will be useful for students of Sociology, candidates who are preparing for the Civil Services Examinations, and all those interested in Sociology and the complexities of the Indian Society.
