You may aware that the planning commission of india appointed a Task force to study the implementation of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan and give recommendations. Subsequently, the Task Force submitted its first report on 25 November 2010. These recommendations will legitimize the actions of non allocation of funds to SCSP and TSP by ministries / departments.
The report excludes 40 Ministries / Departments in the case of Scheduled caste and 43 in the case of Scheduled Tribes from making any efforts for their development
Responsibilities of 10 Ministries / Departments will be lessened
Only 9 Ministries / Departments will continue the status quo
Only responsibilities of 6 Ministries / Departments will be enhanced
They are totally against to the principles of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan as envisioned by Mrs. Indira Gandhi Jee.
Accounting of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan for National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme and Indira Aawaaz Yojana etc to the extent of SCs and STs is against the concept, as is was in addition to the general welfare / developmental schemes by the government.
They ultimately legitimizes the debate of indivisibility of funds by ministries / departments there by non allocation of funds under Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan
