Overview: Yadav refers to a collection of peasant-pastoral communities in India that claim descent from the mythological Hindu King Yadu. Traditionally, Yadav groups were linked to cattle raising and were outside the formal caste system. Yadavs are concentrated in Northern India, particularly in Haryana, Uttar PRadesh and Bihar.
