 “National Consultation:  Future Strategies for Legislation & Implementation”  

         22nd October 2013 

YMCA Auditorium, 1 Jai Singh Road, New Delhi.

As part of the legislative process, the government of India considers many bills in each session, in the recently concluded monsoon session there were a total of about 16 bills cleared and about 8 more introduced in the Rajya Sabha, some critical bills like the food bill, Companies bills etc,were passed this session, however SCP TSP was missing in the list of bills to be tabled in the parliament. The winter session is scheduled to begin in the month of November and we do hope that this will be one of the priorities of the government.  The Core committee members of NACSTL along with other Civil Society groups, experts, academics and community representatives do think that this is an opportune time to strategize the way forward  and to come together to share our views and thoughts on the issues with reference to the SCP TSP bill, our objectives and strategies to address the key concerns and challenges in the effective implementation of SCP TSP.

It is also very unfortunate that the Ministry of Tribal Affairs has not yet drafted a bill on TSP, this is absolutely detrimental to the development of the Tribals/Adivasis. The strategies would also take this into account and factor our demands for a TSP draft in the next session.This conference will bring together policy experts, lawmakers, community leaders, academics to chalk out the most effective advocacy strategy and precisely strategize on the urgency of the legislation and its effective implementation for the development of the communities and to ensure that SCP TSP becomes a legislation soon.

Looking forward to working together to strengthen the Dalit and Adivasi Economic rights and ensure that a National  legislation is passed on SCP/TSP soon!

“The “National Coalition on SCP/TSP Legislation”, comprises of over 200 Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes organizations, civil society partners from across 22 states in India. This Coalition has been working towards strengthening the economic rights of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes by focusing on the special component plan (SCP) and Tribal sub plan (TSP) at the national level. The main focus of the campaign is to accelerate the process of the demand to legislate SCP/TSP and use it as one of the effective ways to achieve economic equity and in the process reclaim the due share of the economic development in the country.”
