Tamilnadu claims to be the 3rd most urbanized State in the Country, But, it is a sad fact that benefits of urbanization have not reached the dalits in Tamilnadu as much as for others. Right to education for dalits (like the right to own land) has been another
basic denial in the traditional caste system, over the centuries. Dalits, as per the 2011census, form 20.01% of  the total Tamilnadu population. Tamilnadu is the only States that have greater percentage of their population as dalits. Dalits in Tamilnadu are surely a significant section of the people of Tamilnadu. Considering the inequalities faced by Dalit girl students in their life, at the national level and state level, many of the social scientists, teachers, researchers and
students have already conducted few studies. Such studies are forming basis
for the present study. but, however, there is no such in depth and concreted study has been conducted in particular to the collegiate education In Coimbatore according to 2011 census the total dalit population is 53,5911which constitutes 21.80% of city population.
