In India , caste-based discrimination is against constitutional guarantees of equality under Article 15(1). However there are no special laws or specific criminal provisions that prohibit caste discrimination or atrocities based on it; nor is there any official government data collected specifically to monitor such incidents. According to National Crime Records Bureau statistics from 2015, crimes against scheduled castes have decreased by over 25% since 2007. In 2016 alone 1 person per hour died due to untouchability related issues according as per NCRB report.
