New Tribes Under ST List
On 15 June 1999, the Government of India has laid down the modalities for determining the inclusion and exclusion and other modifications in the Orders specifying list of Scheduled Tribes. All actions are taken with respect to proposals of State/UT Governments for the communities demanding Scheduled Tribes status as per the modalities. These modalities are being followed for inclusion/exclusion of communities under ST list. According to these modalities, all the actions are taken with respect to proposals of State/UT Governments for the communities demanding Scheduled Tribes status. Only those proposals will be considered for amendment of legislation which have been recommended and justified by the concerned State Government/Union Territory Administration and concurred with by the Registrar General of India (RGI) and the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes.
