  1. What you have shown on your site is a list of surnames not castes.But your page heading is "Indian cast list", which I think is not justified. So either change page heading or create a list that will contain Surname,Caste and their Origin.

  3. This website is dedicated to documenting the history of Saini community of Punjab and its bordering districts in Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. This website does not deal with the history of Mali, Kushwaha, Maurya, etc and other groups who either started using 'Saini' surname only in 20th century , or started associating themselves with the Saini identity since then for various reasons. This website also does not deal with the ethnography of Gola, Sagarvanshi or Bhagrathi, or related communities in Western UP who also describe themselves as "Saini" but with a different meaning and origin of the term. We respect these communities but consider them distinct from Saini community of Punjab. Disclaimer can be read here .
