  • National Seminar on Caste Panchayats, Democracy and Constitutional Values
    National Seminar on Caste Panchayats, Democracy and Constitutional Values is being organized on April 15-16, 2017, by Centre for Social Inclusion and Minority Rights NLUD in collaboration with Dr. Ambedkar Chair in Social Justice Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi and sponsored by Indian Council of Social Sciences Research (ICSSR) New Delhi.


    The objective of this National Seminar is not to pass any legal or moral judgment against the institution of Caste Panchayat but to understand its structural and functional dynamics interfacing the constitutional values. The objective also extends to understand social, legal and constitutional nuances and angularities of Caste Panchayats and its overall impact on the rural society. Accordingly, the outcome of the Seminar would facilitate the organizers, participants and other stake holders to make legislative and policy interventions to bring about positive social transformation. This Seminar would also provide excellent opportunity to the participants to put across their own views and exchange of ideas in order to have a holistic understanding on the subject matter.
