ST Reservation Issue

Published on April 29, 2022
Current Context: Hattis of Himachal Pradesh have echoed the demand for ST reservations.
ST Reservation Issue
  • Hattis, named after their profession of selling vegetables in the Haat (local market), have echoed their demand for inclusion in the ST list. They are a tribal group with a sizeable presence of 3 Lakh individuals in the Sirmour Region of Himachal Pradesh.
  • They have been demanding ST status through their traditional panchayat called KHUMBLI (Like Khap in Haryana). The inclusion of a community in the SC/ST grouping lies with the President.
  • The President of India is empowered to declare a community as a part of the SC/ST group, by notification in this regard. The ST status would be positive discrimination for the Hattis to help them evolve through constitutional safeguards.


Q.1 To which state do Hattis (a tribal community) belong?
a. Andhra Pradesh
b. Mizoram
c. Nagaland
d. Himachal Pradesh
