Abstract: The paper looks at the concept of the dominant caste as has been propounded by M.N.Srinivas in his work on Dominant Caste. The critical analysis of the paper lies in the looking at how Jats are a dominant caste and force in Haryana. The reasons behind this dominance are also looked at critically which tends to provide insights into the contemporary status of the Jats.
