In the present study the cross sectional  analysis is  carried out  in  the rural and tribal area of Nasik District of Maharashtra to study the relationship between socio demographic character of mother that is  maternal caste and mode of delivery either normal or LSCS. To measure the risk of emergency LSCS with respect to demographic character of mother, 1230 women delivering infants in the study setting during one year i.e. from January 2009 to December 2009 was selected. The study assesses the mode of delivery, caste of mother and the occurrence of low birth weight babies in the study setting. Thus this study explores the impact of maternal social factor that is caste on outcome of pregnancy in terms of utilization of emergency obstetric services and proportion of low birth weight babies in a rural hospital in tribal area.  Further the findings suggest that the socioeconomic factor that is maternal caste can be an important determinant in the case of decision making regarding the mode of delivery & occurrence of LBW as an outcome of the pregnancy.
