About SC Welfare:
A striking feature of Scheduled Castes demography of Tripura is that the Sch. Castes are not confined exclusively to "Paras" or "Bastis". They live intermingled with other communities in the same village spread all over the state. The social gap between the Scheduled Castes and other communities in Tripura is minimum.
The fact remains that the Scheduled Castes here are at the lowest rung of the social ladder and almost at the bottom in the scale of poverty. About 70% of the Scheduled Caste population of the state are engaged in Agricultural activities either as small and marginal farmers or share croppers or agricultural labourers. Practically, all fisherman families in the State belong to Scheduled Castes.
The development of Scheduled Castes took a new turn with the Scheduled castes Sub plan strategy adopted during the 12th five year plan for their accelerated development.
As already stated Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan villages are considered to be the prime target area for the implementation of the programme of development of Scheduled Castes. At the same time, attention is also being given to the Scheduled Castes population who are living outside the Special component area. The responsibility for implementing the development plans, rests with various development departments of the State. The Scheduled Caste Welfare Department monitors and coordinates such activities. The Scheduled Castes Co-operative development corporation Ltd. is a special body created to promote economic development of the Scheduled Castes.
In 2014-15 the Total State plan expenditure (35 SCSP Concern Deptts.) was Rs.1759.80 Crores while the SCSP expenditure was Rs.291.11 Crores which constitutes 16.54% of the total State plan expenditure.
For the year 2015-16 the SCSP outlay is Rs.343.63 Crores as against the total state plan outlay of Rs.1983.29 Crores. This is 17.32% of the state plan outlay.
