Module 2, Post 2 – Ministry for Tribal affairs India

The Ministry for Tribal Affairs was set up as late as 1999 in India separating from the Ministry for Social Justice, to create focused efforts towards integrated socio-economic development of tribal populations in India.


The site is home to a variety of  official information regarding Tribal data, schemes for tribal empowerment, tribal healthcare, Forest Rights Act, constitutional provisions and Annual reports of the working of the ministry.

What was impressive to me was that site has a detailed record of the Parliamentary discussions concerning Tribal issues which could be found at the link given below.
