Koli caste was supposed to be lower than touchable caste but upper than Harijan or Shilpkar. The Shilpkar could take food cooked by Kolis but Kolis did not take food cooked by Shilpkar. Same way Koli used to take food cooked by Bith (upper caste Khas, Rajput and Brahmins) but Bith did not take food cooked by Kolis.
It is said that Kolis were born by Rajput male and Harijan or Koli female. Today, Kolis say that they are Chandravanshi.
