The caste system, under which hundreds of millions of Indians were kept away from educational, ownership, and employment opportunities, and subjected to violence for "getting out of line." British rulers encouraged caste privileges and customs, at least before the 20th century.

A 2007 report by the state-run National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganised Sector (NCEUS) found that 25% of Indians, or 236 million people, lived on less than 20 rupees per day
  9. 9. Impact of Poverty in India Several issues like hunger, illness and thirst are both causes and Effects – for instance : not having water means you’re poor,but being poor also means you can’t afford water or food. The effects of poverty are most often interrelated so that one problem hardly ever occurs alone. For instance bad sanitation makes it easier spread around old and new disease, and hunger and lack of water make people more vulnerable to them.
