DALIT ADIVASI BUDGET ANALYSIS 2018 -19

by sapna — 2018-03-01 16:16

Scheduled Castes (Dalits/SC) and Scheduled Tribes (Adivasis/ST) are communities who have experienced historical marginalization resulting in denial of their due share in economic resources, developmental benefits and basic entitlements necessary for a decent living. As a result of caste based discrimination,ethnicity, gender face social exclusion perpetuated by the dominant class as a result of which they fare the poorest on all socio-economic indicators vis-à-vis structural impediments, find it difficult in accessing developmental benefits. As a step towards addressing these increasing inequalities between SC/ST and other dominant class, the government in its fifth-five year plan (1974-75) introduced the policy of Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) and Special Component Plan (SCP) in the sixth five year plan (1979-80). SCSP/TSP has been formulated as a mechanism for allocating development plan fund for SCs and STs across Central Ministries and all departments in the state in proportion to the SC/ST population. Allocations under these plans were mandated to be in proportion to the population. In the FY 2017-18, the government merged the Plan and Non-Plan components of the Budget. Further the SCSP-TSP was renamed as Schemes for the Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Schemes for the Welfare of Scheduled Tribes respectively. As per the Budget Circular of 2017-18, Jadhav Guidelines, which clearly detail the allocations for SC, are to be followed. The following analysis is based on the Budget Circulars of 2017-18 and 2018-19.
