DALIT ADIVASI BUDGET ANALYSIS 2017 -18

by sapna — 2017-02-09 15:45

Why has the Union Budget 2017-18 done away with Sub- Plans for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes? NCDHR-DAAA’s analysis of the Union Budget 2017-18 shows that the Sub-Plans for SC and STs, which were covered under Statement 21 and 21A respectively in the previous Budget 2016-17, have been replaced by ‘Allocations for welfare of Scheduled Castes’, under Statement 10A and ‘Allocations for welfare of Scheduled Tribes’ under Statement 10B. It is unwarranted. This move, which is retrogressive, makes SCs and STs mere benefi ciaries of welfare programmes. Dissolving the ‘plan’ component of the budget leaves SCSP-TSP in a limbo in the absence of guidelines from either the Finance Ministry or NITI Aayog. Not only this, several hitherto administrative expenses under Non-Plan like salaries and Pensions of employees are allocated for SC/ST Welfare schemes. Article 46 of the Indian Constitution states that; "The State shall promote with special care the educational and economic interests of the weaker section of the people, and in particular, of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes, and shall protect them from social injustice and all forms of exploitation." This Constitutional duty of the government seems to have been compromised and abdicated.
