The Government must provide them comprehensive social security coverage for their old age.
New panel for welfare of nomadic communities Context: The Centre will form a welfare panel for nomadic, semi-nomadic and de-notified communities. Announced in Budget. A Welfare Development Board will also be set up under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to design and implement programmes for these hard-to-reach communities Denotified, Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribe A Search for New Ho National Commission for Denotified Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic T Ministry of Social Justice & E
Key facts: The committee will be set up under NITI Aayog to complete the task of identifying de-notified, nomadic and semi-nomadic communities. The committee will follow up on the work of the Renke Commission and the Idate Commission .
Renke Commission and the Idate Commission Proposed by Idate Commission: . Bhiku Ramji Idate Commission on DNT, SNT, and NT communities, in its report, had recommended to set up a permanent commission for the communities on the lines of similar commissions for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes. Composition: In its report submitted to the social justice ministry in January 2018, the Idate Commission said such a permanent commission should have a prominent community leader as its chairperson, and a senior Union government bureaucrat, an anthropologist, and a sociologist as members Other important recommendations of the panel include granting Constitutional protection to these communities under a separate third schedule after Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, making them eligible for reservation, and extending the protective cover of Prevention of Atrocities Act to them Need for special attention: . The DNT, NT, SNT communities have been identified as the most marginalised by several commissions set up since Independence. The community has for long not been enumerated in the Census data The Renke Commission report of 2008 had arrived at a rough estimate of their
The Criminal Tribes Act (CTA) of 1871 . After the revolt of 1857, the British needed to take a number of preventive steps to keep India in their clutches. The Law and Order Commission recommended that certain communities in India were professionally criminal and their occupation as well as religion was to commit crimes. On such recommendations, the Criminal Tribes Act (CTA) of 1871 was enacted This extremely oppressive act notified certain communities as criminal tribes. Once a tribe became "notified" as criminal, here is what it meant for its members: Every member of the notified community was forced to register himself/herself at the local police station and had to give 'Hazri' (attendance) at a specified time of the day. Their movements were curtailed. They could not shift their residence at will and had to take proper permission before any travel or movement. Severe punishments were put in place for breaking these rules. The local police could easily round up any member of the community upon mere suspicion.
ldate commission Recommendations: Denotified Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribes are poorest of the poor, most marginalised and most downtrodden communities who are subject to social stigma, atrocity and exclusion. Therefore, the commission has recommended giving protection to Denotified Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribes the communities under the Atrocities Act. The government should provide strong legal protections and constitutional safeguards, including the extension of the Protection of Atrocities Act to the NT/ DNT/ SNT communities by creating a separate Third schedule as Scheduled De-notified, Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribes. . . Noting that all that the Centre has done so far are "symbolic reparations", the Idate Commission advocated for release of 2011 caste census, which is yet to be made public, at least on the DT/ NT/ SNT community, so that policies can be made specifically for these communities.
