Indian Exclusion Report 2016

Indian Exclusion Report (IXR) is released by the Centre for Equity Studies (CES) in New Delhi.

  • The 2016 IXR Report determines exclusion by taking into account four public goods, namely, pensions for the elderly, digital access, agricultural land, and legal justice for under trials.
  • In its 2016 report, it has found out that the same historically disadvantaged groups such as Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims, and persons with disabilities and age-related vulnerabilities continue to remain as the most severely and consistently excluded groups of the society.
  • It also profiles four highly vulnerable groups in terms of their access to these goods.
