    Loans for Scheduled Caste

    Since times immemorial, the scheduled castes have been socially and professionally disadvantaged. They did not enjoy the same privileges as the rest of the society in any walk of life. They were even referred to as the “Depressed Classes” during the British Rule. However, post Indian Independence, the country started making up for such atrocities by providing the scheduled caste and tribes (SCs/STs) with a “Reservation Status” and guaranteed political representation for them.

    In a day and age where the country is striving to provide equal opportunity for all, banks and financial institutions are offering special loans for the scheduled caste so they can meet their needs and requirements like any other sect in the country.

    Here are some loans available especially for the Scheduled Caste in India:
