Propose article renaming[edit]

To avoid possible confusion and ambiguity, I would like to propose that this article be renamed to something like List of Scheduled Tribes in India. Are there any objections? If not, I'll do the rename/page move in about another week.--cjllw | TALK 08:00, 2005 September 6 (UTC)

I have now moved the page to List of Scheduled Tribes in India, and fixed up the redirects.--cjllw | TALK 01:40, 2005 September 12 (UTC)


Sometime ago, I had read somewhere (most probably in Times of India -- not exactly sure) that Parsis have been included in the list of Scheduled Tribes. But Google doesn't return anything like that. Does any body know about this? Was it just a proposal or something? I am sure I had read this somewhere. utcursch | talk 15:44, 21 July 2006 (UTC) Parsis are listed in the list of minorites like Jains , Muslims , Christian etc & not in the list of Scheduled tribes .

Also it is requested to make the latest list availble from gazzete Girish Maliwad

No. Parsi population are a separate religion. religion and tribal status are independent of each other.

There is no reference or the data on which the list is valid. As Government makes changes in the list occasionally both are important --K N Unni (talk) 11:56, 28 January 2008 (UTC)


The Central List of Other Backward Classes website, dealing with backwards castes in India, refuses to load a page for Punjab. We here do not have a section on scheduled castes in Punjab. I have found no explanation for this at all, as I am assuming that the Sikhism statistics apply to Punjabis. Can thid be explained by anyone? --Maurice45 (talk) 20:48, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

WP:INDIA Banner/Rajasthan workgroup Addition[edit]

Note: {{WP India}} Project Banner with Rajasthan workgroup parameters was added to this article talk page because the article falls under Category:Rajasthan or its subcategories. Should you feel this addition is inappropriate , please undo my changes and update/remove the relavent categories to the article -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 07:27, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
