Interim Budget 2019

Announcements in the Interim Budget 2019:

  • Formation of a committee under the Niti Aayog, which would identify and classify these tribes.
  • Constitution of a Welfare Board under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment for the purpose of implementing welfare and development programmes for denotified, nomadic and semi-nomadic communities.

About the earlier attempt for classification:

  • National Commission for Denotified, Nomadic And Semi-Nomadic Tribes headed by Dada Idate had prepared state-wise lists.
  • But this list drew a lot of criticisms including from the researchers who were working with the commission.
  • It was criticised that the Idate commission lacked the scientific data necessary to bring out a comprehensive classification of denotified, Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Communities.

About the vulnerability of these Communities:

  • Denotified, Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Communities are considered to be the most deprived sections of Indian society.
  • These communities are hard to reach and less visible.
  • The nomadic and semi-nomadic communities move from place to place in search of livelihood.
  • As a result, they are frequently left out. 
  • Hence to address the issues related to these communities, there is a need for special attention.
  • The Renke Commission and the Idate Commission have done commendable work in studying the various problems faced by these communities and recommending measures to address the issues more comprehensively.
