The Ravidassia community living in the state of Punjab in India, are known as Ad-Dharmi. They have been granted Scheduled Caste status and fall under the Hindu sub-groups. Though the Ad-Dharmi population is a follower of Guru Ravidas, they amalgamate basics of Hinduism. A Gurdwara is found in every settlement which serves as; a place of worship as well as a hub or meeting point of the community. The traditionally the Ad-Dharmi were leather tanners and a majority were agricultural labourers. However, with the passage of time the group has progressed and many Ad-Dharmis have started to migrate to towns and cities. They have taken up several blue and white collar professions, a small significant minority have taken education as an occupation. The Ad-Dharmis have migrated overseas as a group like other Punjabis. They are a fairly large community in Europe, UK, Canada and North America. The Ad Dharmi matrimony of the community is divided such that those that believe in Guru Granth Sahib solemnize their marriage rituals in accordance to the Sikh traditions while the others follow the Hindu marriage rituals. They perform the Anand karj in the Gurudwara or in a place where the Guru Granth Sahib is present and can be performed by any Amritdhari (baptized) Sikh. This reformed sect has evolved into a caste, with strict endogamy rules. They do not marry other members of the Chamar caste. The main exogamous clans of the Ad Dharmi caste are Bangur, Bhardwaj, Bhargu, Chakhu, Chumar, Chokhria, Chandar, Hohe, Por, Rai, Rattu, Sund, Suman, Sandhu, Soniara, Sidhu, Shergill, Thind and Pharias community.
