Hello, Virendra

Let me tell you first of all that what actually 'Ethnic' means. Ethnic is a type of social division based on culture, religion, language, status in the society etc. That clearly states that in such composition profiles one is going to provide data about Population, and various divisions in it on the basis of-
•SC/ST/OBC/General, etc.

I guess that above resource includes all such data. If you feel to add more, then write another resource and link it to this one if you wish.
