Tamil Nadu - Social inclusion (English)

Progress across social groups has been uneven in Tamil Nadu. For the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, poverty remains higher than for other groups. These groups also lag behind others in schooling and access to salaried jobs. Moreover, open defecation is higher among households belonging to these groups. One area where most households in the state face a challenge is access to drinking water, with levels of access being lower than the national average.
