Empowering SC/ST children: are we doing enough? 20.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The millennia-old story of the low-caste Ekalavya sacrificing his thumb to upper-caste forces for having dared to educate himself continues to haunt the collective conscience of this country. Have we done enough for the SC/ST community to atone for this guilt? An attempt was made in this direction by former prime minister Indira Gandhi to empower all SC/STs educationally and economically by earmarking a portion of plan outlay for them in proportion to their population through a Sub-Plan. This mere scheme was given statutory status in Karnataka by replacing it with the Karnataka Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan & Tribal Sub-Plan (Planning, Allocation and Utilisation of Financial Resources) Act in 2013. Since then Rs 60,691 crore has been allocated under the Act and a substantial sum, Rs 55,331.82 crore, spent. But have these helped bridge "gaps in educational and economic development" of SC/ST children when compared to the state averages? Is there a reliable database on the "gaps in development" -- for instance, ...
