In the current era, bondili people settled in different parts of South India especially in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Kerala. In our community, most of the people are living below poverty line.
Bondili’s who resides in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamilnadu declared as backward classes. But in Karnataka as per the census report 1994 they called as Rajputs and belong to a forward community, and bondilis who resides in Kerala are in very less number.
Sri Late R Balaji Singh, Nellore is one of the key person who took initiative to wrote a book in Telugu with some valuable information about the bondili history, bondili’s marriage rituals and etc explained clearly.
