Solution

The correct option is C Abolition of untouchability
Abolition of untouchability has been included among the Fundamental Rights under Article 17 of the Indian Constitution. This act lay down that whatever is open to general public should be open to the members of the scheduled castes. No shopkeeper can refuse to sell them, no person may refuse to render any service to any person on the ground of untouchability. The act made provision for imprisonment and fine.
