In as many as 38 of government schools Dalit children are made to sit separately while eating. In 20 percent schools Dalits children are not even permitted to drink water from the same source. A shocking 27.6 of Dalits were prevented from entering police stations and 25.7 from entering ration shops. 33 of public health workers refused to visit Dalit homes and 23.5 of Dalits still do not get letters delivered in their homes. Segregated seating for Dalits was found in 30.8 of self-help groups and cooperatives and 29.6 of panchayat offices. In 14.4 of villages Dalits were not permitted even to enter the panchayat building. In 12 of villages surveyed Dalits were denied access to polling booths or forced to form a separate line.
