Purpose of C.B.C.I. Office for Tribal Affairs :

The CBCI Committee for Tribal Affairs (CTA) was part of National Commission for SC/ST/BC till 2008. With the growing problems, issues and challenges related to SC/ST/BC it was thought of more focused actions to address the concerns related to these communities. Hence in the process of Reorganising CBCI, it was thought essential to bifurcate the Commission and create and independent, Committee for Tribal Affairs (CTA). Though strategically it will have an integral approach with other Commissions to address the concerns of the mentioned communities, it will function under a Secretary with more focused priorities and importance of Scheduled Tribes/Adivasis.

Hence the purpose of this Committee:
  • Advocacy on the National concerns of Adivasi communities.
  • Networking with like-minded organisations and movements on tribal issues.
  • Inspiring and Strengthening the Regions through animation and training.
  • Research and documentation.
