Budget 2019: Government to identify nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes to include them in social welfare schemes

The government will set up a committee under NITI Aayog to identify the nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes who have not benefitted from the government welfare schemes owing to their isolation.

Addressing the budget session, acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal has announced a slew of measures to be incorporated by the government beneficial to the Indians. Acknowledging the remoteness of nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes and their exclusion from the economy, Piyush Goyal declared that the government will identify such tribes and extend the welfare schemes to them.

The government will set up a committee under NITI Aayog to identify the nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes who have not benefitted from the government welfare schemes owing to their isolation. Welfare development board will be set up under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to reach out to these faraway tribes and develop tailored strategic interventions for providing them with social and economic assistance.

As per a report in the Indian Express, at present, there are about 260 extremely marginalised tribes that have never been classified under any reserved categories and have also been left out of the social welfare schemes.
