About Us
 

Banjara is one of the biggest ethnic group of India, but it is not a caste as conventionally construed in Indian Society. It does not fall in any category of "Manu Samriti Chatur Varnas". But it is a Community or Social Group. The name Banjara was derived to them from Sanskrit word of Banaj or Vanijya (Trading) because of their main and age old vocation (prior to British Trade and Raj) of transportation of food grains and other commodities on back of animals, hence the name Banjara was attached to them.
