In India, scheduled caste, scheduled tribe (SC/ST) and other backward classes (OBC) are officially recognized by the constitution as groups of disadvantaged indigenous people, providing special provisions for their betterment, implementing a 'positive discrimination'. Most education scholarships and student aid is available to minorities belonging to these castes or tribes among others.

Figures may not not add up to 100 due to rounding off.
