Studies on partition of India in 1947 and its effects like migration of refugees and their rehabilitation, post-independent nation building processes in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and other issues related to the partition are increasing day by day. Although in the recent years some scholars have paid attention to the plights of the Scheduled Caste refugees, many aspects of the impact of partition on the Scheduled Castes are yet to be properly reconstructed. In this paper an attempt has been made to review the historical studies on the partition of India especially on the partition of Bengal in 1947; in this study the location of the East Bengali Scheduled Caste refugees in the historiography of the partition of Bengal are also highlighted.
