The Indian Muslims (13.4%), and Christians (2.3%) often function as castes since they too marry among themselves.

Official lists are compiled by states recognising the OBC, Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes. The dividing lines can be ambiguous, several castes have demanded a lower rank so that they can avail of the privileges offered. The term "Upper castes" often includes Forward castes and the OBCs, when news reports refer to the Scheduled castes in relation to the two upper groups.
