Howev-er, it is only after Independence that a systematic policy for positive discrimination was implement-ed in India. The groups susceptible to be the beneficiaries of reservation policies are the victims of entrenched backwardness consisting of the Scheduled Castes (SCs), the Scheduled Tribes (STs) and the Other Backward Classes (OBCs). The Scheduled Castes consist the former untouchables and those people or groups of people at the bottom of the caste hierarchy. The Scheduled Tribes or the Adivasis are the tribal or aboriginal population considered to be mostly outside the mainstream society. The Oth-er Backward Classes are those which do not fall within the SCs and the STs, but are considered backward due to their social, educational, political or economic disabilities as opposed to the Ad-vantaged classes of citizens in India, however there isn 't any fixed definition as to who all

Though many Western civilizations have influenced the way we live our lives today, many forget the progressive movements of early Classical and Contemporary Oriental cultures. Two of these cultures that are still revisited by historians today were the epitome of early Asian civilization and very influential guides for cultures to come. Han China (206 B.C.E.-220 A.D.) and Gupta India (320 C.E.-525 C.E.) were two dynasty-based civilizations in the early conception of Southeastern Asian rule. Though both had a very similar class based society and both had to endure outside invasions as well as internal conflicts, they both had unique, and future utilized, ways of maintaining their rule. Both of these cultures needed to keep order and stability within their borders to maintain a prosperous society.

In the health and social care settings, the service the clients receive is vital and should be met at a high standard. This sometimes is not if they are judged by their background, upbringing, race, culture, religion and even sex resulting to discrimination. So it is very essential to implement anti-discriminatory practices in order to eliminate discrimination but there are difficulties associated in the implementation of these anti-discriminatory practices within the health and social care setting.

There is rarely any talk about the post 9/11 racism that followed after the dust from the fallen towers had settled. Since 9/11, “increased racial and religious animosity has left Arabs, Middle Easterners, Muslims, and those who bear stereotyped physical resemblance to members of these groups, fearful of potential hatred and hostility from persons of other cultures” After September 11, 2001 there was a new profound nationalism spirit, that many Americans followed, which unfortunately turned into racism. As former president George w. Bush had said “You 're either with us or against us in the fight against terror." This convinced millions that our freedom was worth defending at all costs. This led many people to believe that if they weren’t
The vision and mission of the Catholic Church is “to be a sign and instrument of communion with God and unity among all people,” (Archdiocese of Sydney). "Having been divinely sent to the nations that she might be the universal sacrament of salvation,” (Catechism of the Church, par. 849). The church works towards this mission by addressing various social justice issues, one of which is discrimination. Discrimination can be defined as the unjust treatment of an individual or a group of people based on their race, gender, ethnicity or skin colour. Some prominent examples of discrimination in our modern world include racism, ethnic and religious intolerance, and currently the national rising issue of refugees and asylum seekers.
Discrimination is an injustice and can have devastating effects on individuals who are targeted. There are numerous regulations, laws and codes of practice to promote diversity and everyone’s right to fair and equal treatment, ensure equality and end discrimination. One example is The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). This act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone with a disability. Every organisation, by law, is required to have a policy in place relating to disability.
The Canadian Human Rights Act, as expected, does not condone discrimination relating to pregnancy. This is according to the Canadian Commission's official policy statement. Discrimination against pregnant women is considered to be a form of sex discrimination, since only women can become pregnant. Areas of discriminatory practices against pregnant women covered by this policy include: negative treatment, refusal to hire or promote, termination of employment, and harassment. Unfortunately, in Canada, like many other countries, many women who become pregnant are criticized when it comes to their place in society.

Letting clients using health and social care services and allowing them to have their own say and make their own decisions and social care professional respecting that promote anti-discriminatory practice. This helps make individuals feel empowered. National initiatives are made to make sure individuals using health and social care services are treated fairly e.g. someone could be treating a disabled person the way you would treat a normal person and just because they are disabled doesn't mean they must be treated differently and they are useless they should be treated with dignity and respect.

A pro-rata reservation of 22.5% (SC 15% and ST 7.5%) has been made for them in educational institutions which come under the administrative control of the Ministry of Human Resource Development and other Central Ministries. Similar reservations, directly proportional to their population, have also been provided by the State Governments and Union Territory Administrations. The schedules caste and the schedule tribes also do not have to worry about their age being appropriate for an examination or for other institutions as the government is lenient when it comes to their age, i.e., the upper limit age restrictions which are present for other citizens are more lenient when it comes to them. It is also easier for them to get into universities as they have been given a concession of a lower cut-off qualifying mark as compared to the qualifying mark for others. Apart from SC and SC candidates, seats are reserved for other backward communities
According to functionalist, the caste system exists because it is functional. One possible reason could be that the labor is cheap and the higher classed people can gain money easier in this sense. While it seems like an unjust system it has happened before, like through out older civilizations cities were born out of caste systems similar or crueler than the ones in India now.
