Introduction / History

A people group in India often considered lower middle class in a caste based society. It's an occupational caste, considered to be in the business of oil-pressing and in the manufacture and trade of oil and similar oil based products. They consider their origin, historically and mythologically from an Indian god or deity named Shiva.


Where Are they Located?

They are basically from Hindi speaking North Indian Geographical belt of India, across 15 states. Due to inter-state immigration in India and rapid urbanization, they have now spread all across India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Traditionally their job is intensively laboring in pressing and extraction of oils from nuts for cooking purposes. Also, due to urbanization, many shift to business and governmental administrative vocations. In villages, they are also in farming and agriculture and in animal husbandry.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Cultural beliefs vary from religion to religion. Teli Sribastab are either Hindus, worshipping many gods and goddesses, primarily worshipping the god named Vishnu, in the form of an incarnation called Satyanarayan, or they are Sunni Muslims.
