The framers of the Indian constitution were conscious of the prevailing miserable and appalling living condition of the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes, who have remained far behind and segregated from national and social life and have continued to be socially oppressed and economically exploited for centuries due to various types of disabilities. The framers of the Indian constitution took care to safeguard the interests of the scheduled castes and the schedules tribes and to give them a sense of security, to protect them against any discrimination and to help them to get integrated in the main stream of the national life.
The book basically focuses upon the various legal provisions which provide safeguards and protection to the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes. The plight and conditions of these people are vividly analysed and discussed. How judiciary is giving recognition and enforcing constitutional rights and protections to the members of the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes is also elaborately discussed. The book also presents judicial strategies for securing social justice to the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes as enshrined in the constitution of India.
It is hoped that the book will be of immense use and help to students, teachers, researchers, lawyers and judges.
