Abstract:
In Independent India, the factors like industrialization and urbanization, enactment of several laws, spread of education, socio-religious reform movements, westernization etc affected the caste system and brought various changes in its traditional features. One such visible change in the attitude of different castes is to rise in caste hierarchy and improve social status through forming caste associations. Thus in present India each caste is trying to undergo a process of development and empowerment through the establishment of associations. As noted by G.S.Ghurye (1969, p.299) the feature of Hindu society during contemporary century has been the marked tendency for every caste to form its own association comprising all members of the caste speaking the same language. Therefore to trace out the role played by such caste associations in the development of Other Backward Classes, the present study has undertaken with reference to one of the important Other Backward Castes of Karnataka state namely "Billawa", which form a major segment of backward class population of the region.
