Abstract: Understanding the people of a region or a nation is very important to understanding the social composition of its population. For this purpose, every country enumerates its people frequently in a systematic manner. This will help provide essential information on their spatial distribution, age and sex structure, and other critical social and economic characteristics. In Indian society, caste is a fundamental social component and has always formed the basis for public policy. Structurally, the society is built on Caste, which has functional value. Functionally, it is a complex and culturally unique social system that combines some aspects of descent based on hereditary occupation and strictly follows endogamy. Socially, it ascribes the social class, social identity, and hierarchy which exclude each other and decides power and authority in the society. Based on Caste, Indian culture has been divided into thousands of strict and closed stratification groups. Unless the pattern of Caste and hierarchy is understood, it is not easy to frame a comprehensive social policy. Since British rule, Caste has been the primary criterion for understanding the basic structure of India. After Independence, the public policy related to development focused on Caste, a conflicting point of social development. Reservation in educational institutes and government jobs are provided based on caste identities. Those who support caste-based reservations support caste enumeration in the Census, and those who oppose caste quotas are opposed to caste censuses. But sociologically, the detailed population data is essential to designing welfare and development programs, and understanding the Caste is crucial for creating an inclusive social policy.
