Budget criticised by Dalit, SC/ST rights activists - Business Standard

by sapna last modified 2017-02-04 17:21

The union budget for 2017-18 was criticised by a group of Dalit and Scheduled Caste rights activists here today, for its "paradigmatic shift" in policy from sub plans to welfare-oriented approach and merger of plan and non-plan heads in it. The budget replaces SC Sub Plan (SCSP) and Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) by 'Allocations for welfare of SC and ST' which is a "retrogressive step" as sub plans had been key policy for flow of financial resources to Dalit and Tribal communities in the country, said Paul Divakar in a press conference organised by National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights.
