Five caste groups (Hindu) and a Muslim population from southern West Bengal are studied for the seven blood group systems, i.e. A1A2BO, MNS, Rh, Kell, Duffy, P and Lewis. Caste heterogeneity was found to be statistically insignificant. The two religion groups are also shown to be genetically similar to each other with respect to these blood group loci.
