ST – Welfare – Preface :
The classes, which are included in Section 341 of the Indian Constitution, are known as Scheduled Castes. The Central/ State Governments have implemented many programmes for the upliftment of these sections that are economically, socially, educationally backward. The Scheduled Castes Development Department works for the upliftment of the Scheduled Castes. Under this Department, other eligible castes, other backward classes and the economically backward forward castes are also given educational aids.The former Harijan Welfare Department was bifurcated and the Tribal Welfare Department was formed exclusively to look after the matters connected with tribals as per G.O.(P) No. 69/75/DD dated 21-06-1975. Later the Harijan Welfare Department and the Tribal Welfare Department was renamed as Scheduled Castes Development Department and Scheduled Tribes Development Department respectively.
