In order to reach at the crux of the research, the theoretical framework was built around the subject, `Caste and Identity', with special reference to Ambedkar and Gandhi. The book further deals with the concepts of Inferiority Complex in the light of different personality theories and contextual issues. The investigation reveals that Employed Dalits in Urban settings seemingly develop a higher level of Inferiority Complex compared to the Non-Dalits in the same context. In spite of their educational and economic development, the Employed Dalits experience more of Inferiority Complex apparently caused by the stigma of untouchability. The implications for Pastoral Care were made based on the findings to help Urban Employed Dalits, Men and Women, to overcome Inferiority Complex.
