The sample consisted of 400 students comprising set of 100 each of Scheduled and Non-Scheduled Caste boys, and of Scheduled and Non-Scheduled Caste girls aged between 18 to 23 years. The Physical Activity Attitude Scale (PAAS) constructed by J. Bhullar (1976) was utilized to collect the data from the sample. The ‘mean’ and ‘t-test’ were used for statistical treatment of the data. The mean score disclosed the differential attitude on both parameter- gender and caste. While the mean score for boys at 275.58 was higher than that of girls 266.65 , the same fgure for Non- Scheduled Caste students was 273.60 in comparison with the Scheduled Caste students with mean score of 268.63. The t-ratio between boys and girls was quite signifcant with score of t = 2.95. The same fgure for Non-Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Caste students was insignifcant with t = 1.63.
