  • Present Caste System is a modified Varna Dharma by Britishers.
  • There are many subcategories even for a single Caste. (more than 7 in some cases)
  • I didn't see any scriptures mentioning subcategories in any Varna.

MY QUESTION :

  • Do/did Varnas also have subcategories like Caste or Jati ?
  • What do you mean by this "Present Caste System is an Alternate of Varna by Britisher's"?? – Yogi Apr 14 '17 at 11:58

    @Yogi friend Varna with 4 divisons were modified with caste like Brahmin,Harijan,Dalit, etc,... to even 300 or 400 castes – Sakthi Apr 14 '17 at 12:00

    sub categories arose over time. there is no mention of sub-categories in vedas. Not due to British, just over long period of time. – Swami Vishwananda Apr 15 '17 at 4:33
  • @ Swami Vishwanada Do vedas support birth based caste system? – user9554 May 17 '17 at 18:26
