SUBCAST

 
Third in the Varna system, Vaishyas supposedly evolved from Brahma's thighs. The Vaishya's duty was to ensure the community's prosperity through trade and merchandising.

They are commonly known as banias, a distortion of the Sanskrit word vanik meaning "trader". In southern India, the Chettiars and Mudaliars while in North Agarwals , Maheshwaris , Khandelwals are prominent Vaishya communities, who have contributed to society by building hospitals, endowing universities and developing industries . While the fortunes of the other castes have fluctuated with politics and invasions, the Vaishyas alone have preserved their social and financial stability down the ages movement and then evolved into modern India's leading industrialists.

The colour associated with this Varna is yellow, symbolizing Rajas/Tamas, meaning quality in general. Some traditional north Indian surnames for Vaishyas are Gupta, Bhuti, Agarwal,Garg.

According to the Indian caste system, Vanika (Sanskrit) or Bania (Hindi) is a trader or merchant belonging to the business class.
