Mothers having at least one live birth 5 year preceding the survey were included. Results were analysed by using SPSS software version 16.

Dalit mothers made less Antenatal Care visits, less pregnancies were checked in health facilities and by health professionals (P<.001). Similar trend are also observed in the institutional delivery and delivery attendance by health professionals (P=<.001). Postnatal Care visits was less among the Dalit mothers (13.4 %) in compared to Non-Dalit (P<.001). Lack of awareness, lack of family support, poverty and lack of transportation facility were key barriers for the utilization of MCH services. Conclusions: Significant differences in MCH care and service utilization is observed between Dalit and Non-Dalit mothers; hence, a special focus has to be provided for the Dalits by the government as well as other concerned agencies.
