The Vanjaris were grain carriers and traders of commodities including quality cattle which they used to breed. But during British rule, due to modernisation, Vanjaris lost their traditional occupations. As a result, many of them settled down as marginal farmers near mountains and hilly regions. As of today, population of Vanjaris is estimated around 7 million. they are also concentrated in Beed district of Maharashtra.
