Socio-political presence is the capacity of the village CSU to influence village/taluk level happenings at a broader level — be this communal harmony, establishing corruption-free civic services, protecting women in families, child focus, or whatever. It also includes the ability to influence, if not win, electoral contests.

Using 4 parameters (tax age of the CSU, coverage of the Coolie class, coverage of village population, and caste variety in the membership) our computer calculates the overall strength and influence of individual village CSUs. Applying algorithms to these factors, an accurate assessment of socio-political presence of each village CSU is arrived at.
