Maharashtra Caste List in Marathi
The Maratha caste is originally formed from the amalgamation of families from the peasant (Kunbi), shepherd (Dhangar), blacksmith (Lohar), Sutar (carpenter), Bhandari, Thakar and Koli castes in Maharashtra. Many of them took to military service in the 16th century such as the Deccan sultanates or the Mughals.
According to the Maharashtrian historian B. R. Sunthankar, and scholars such as Rajendra Vora, the “Marathas” are a “middle-peasantry” caste which formed the bulk of the Maharashtrian society together with the other Kunbi peasant caste. Vora adds that the Maratha caste is the largest caste of India and dominate the power structure in Maharashtra because of their numerical strength, especially in the rural society.
