Madivala From Karnataka - Caste Recognition

Hi There,

http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-karnataka/include-madivala-community-in-sc-category/article3596852.ece

I read the above article, though its a bit old; however, wanted to check if the Madivala community (a.k.a Dhobi) is considered under the SC category. Apparently, it seems Madivala is considered as Dhobi in 16 Indian states already

Thank you !

Regards,
Chetan
