casta catalogada (ou casta registrada)

O termo "scheduled castes" foi criado Ato Governamental da Índia de 1935, conforme abaixo, para catalogar (ou registrar) as castas de "intocáveis" do sistema indiano:

[...] In 1935 the British passed the Government of India Act 1935, designed to give Indian provinces greater self-rule and set up a national federal structure. Reservation of seats for the Depressed Classes was incorporated into the act, which came into force in 1937. The Act brought the term "Scheduled Castes" into use, and defined the group as including "such castes, races or tribes or parts of groups within castes, races or tribes, which appear to His Majesty in Council to correspond to the classes of persons formerly known as the 'Depressed Classes', as His Majesty in Council may prefer." This discretionary definition was clarified in The Government of India (Scheduled Castes) Order, 1936 which contained a list, or Schedule, of castes throughout the British administered province [...].

A casa Javat faz parte do grupo de castas intocáveis, e é, portanto, incluída no grupo de scheduled caste. ver a primeira referência web para suporte.
