From HT Archives: A big leap towards an equal society

Updated on Jun 03, 2023 12:26 AM IST

India's first law against untouchability came into effect on June 1, 1955, with the aim of eradicating the practice. Although it had symbolic importance, it was unable to stem the tide of caste-based crime, leading to stronger provisions in 1976 and the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in 1989. Despite these efforts, caste-based discrimination remains a reality in India.
