Urgent Appeal - Endorse the Draft Recommendations on SCP of the NAC - Working Group on Dalits

Dear Friends, 

 

Greetings!


As you are aware, several Dalit and Adivasi leaders, movements, platforms and organisations and those in solidarity with have been urging for the effective implementation of the Special Component Plan for SCs and Tribal Sub Plan. NCDHR (National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights) along with many other platforms has been campaigning on this and supporting these efforts not only at the national but also in several states. 


Responding to the concerns expressed, the Working Group on Dalit issues of National Advisory Committee, convened by Shri Harsh Mander and Ms Farah Naqvi, after due consultations with Dalit Organisations and experts has submitted Draft Recommendations on reforming Special Component Plan (SCP) for Scheduled Castes. The draft recommendation are pasted below for your ready reference and can also be downloaded from the website address (http://nac.nic.in/press_releases/wg_scsp.pdf). The National Advisory Council, has requested for comments on these Draft Recommendations, which will be considered this in the forth coming NAC meeting in the 3rd week of November. The dead line is 18 November. 

 

May I therefore urgently request you to kindly send your endorsements and any further suggestions to strengthen the draft. Some of the Salient recommendations are:


·      A Central legislation for the SCP should be enacted

·      SCSP funds to be made non-lapsable and non-divertible

·      SCP allocation to be equivalent to the proportion of Scheduled Castes in the population at national and state level, should be set apart before the Plan outlays are allocated to the Ministries/Departments and the practice of showing notional outflows by Ministries/Departments to account for SCSP shall be discontinued.

·      Schemes to be accorded highest priority in the 12th Plan period

o   Two residential schools one each for boys & girls – to be set up in each rural block  as well as urban areas per 1 lakh population.

o   Pre-matric and post matric scholarships schemes to extend support to all students belonging to scheduled caste, except those excluded based on well defined criteria. The quantum of support should enable the students to access quality education either in public or private sector.

o   Schemes to secure greater access of Schedules castes to irrigated land, promotion of self employment schemes, and enterprise development.

o   Basic amenities conforming to certain quality norms should be provided to all SC localities.

 

While endorsing the Draft Recommendations for reforming SCP, I request you to press for NAC to Draft Bill for SCP legislation with due consultations to be place in the forthcoming Winter Session and also for a constitution of a National and Sate Authorities for SC Development for effective implementation.

 

Endorsements and recommendations can be sent by email to wgdalits@nac.nic.in or by post latest by 18th Nov 2011 to the following address:
