The name Chamar or Charmakar is derived from the Sanskrit charmakar (leather worker). They work with leather, making hides and shoes and bags. They were relegated to living on the outer edges of villages due to the small of rotting hides and chemicals that they were steeped in. The name Dalit (Marathi for the broken or oppressed people) is a preferred name for this community. The charmakar community majorly involved in their traditional business. The conditions of this community need to study. This paper envisages the socio-economic conditions of charmakar community.
