Untouchability is commonly considered as a system according to which a certain group of people are considered to be polluting or not pure to the society this segregation is basically based on ones caste.
It is generally taken for granted dalits are considered polluted people at the lowest end of the caste orders. The jobs which were considered to be very cheap were assigned to dalits preventing them from engaging in any good occupation. The work they were supposed to do was Manual scavengering, tanning leather, shoe making, washing clothes.
Dalits were not allowed to get any medical treatment, children were not allowed to the school or were have to sit outside the classroom and study from there only.

Subdivided into majorly four parts that are the Brahmana’s, the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas and the Shudras were considered the lowest in the casteism system and were later on fell in the category of untouchability.
