During this period, the Shudras were disenfranchised and separated from the mainstream of society. The Ashram system was inaugurated in this period. Brahmacharya, Grihastha, Vanaprastha and Sannyas Ashram began to be emphasized.

In the later Vedic period many religious categories emerged which became rigid and changed into different castes. Businesses started being genetic. The condition of the herds became miserable during this period: they did not have the same respect as the Rigvedic period. Women were placed in the category of gambling and sura.
