    2. Scheduled Tribes
    3. Anglo-Indians
    Select the correct answer using the codes given below.

    A) 1 and 2 only     

    B) 1 and 3 only

    C) 3 only  

    D) 2 and 3 only

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    The Constitution does not specify the castes or tribes which are to be called the SCs or the STs. It leaves to the President the power to specify as to what castes or tribes in each state and union territory are to be treated as the SCs and STs. Thus, the lists of the SCs or STs vary from state to state and union territory to union territory. Unlike in the case of SCs and STs, the Constitution has defined the persons who belong to the Anglo-Indian community. Accordingly, 'an Anglo-Indian means a person whose father or any of whose other male progenitors in the male line is or was of European descent but who is domiciled within the territory of India and is or was born within such territory of parents habitually resident therein and not established there for temporary purposes only'.
