Dr. Sunil Babu
This research paper explains the condition of socially weak people and the measures taken by the government of India and the constitutional provisions to improve the position of people living in pathetic social condition. This paper also tries to estimate the impact of government policies on the reduction of poverty and on improvement in the deteriorating conditions of the socially weak. The implementation of various programs and policies and their poor result is due to a number of factors which are primarily responsible for it. In the first place, a significant proportion of scheduled castes children continued to remain out of school. The reason may be poverty, ignorance or indifferent attitude of their parents.
