Lok Sabha passes Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Order (Amendment) Bill


Lok Sabha has passed the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Order (Amendment) Bill, 2021. The Bill seeks to modify the list of Scheduled Castes in Tamil Nadu. The Bill replaces the entry for the Devendrakulathan community with Devendrakula Velalar which includes Devendrakulathan, Kalladi, Kudumban, Pallan, Pannadi and Vathiriyan.

Speaking on the Bill, Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Thaawar Chand Gehlot said that no caste is being included and omitted with this legislation. He said, only the regrouping of some castes will be done so that the aspiration of these communities can be fulfilled. Mr. Gehlot said the government is committed towards the welfare of the Scheduled Caste and several historic decisions were taken in this regard. He said, budgetary allocation has increased which will benefit the schemes related to the welfare of scheduled castes. He informed that Central government has devised a new formula for the post matric scholarship which will benefit four crore scheduled caste students.

Congress member Gurjeet Singh, Sunita Duggal of BJP, Goddeti Madhavi of YSR Congress, Rahul Ramesh Shewale of Shiv Sena, Vijay Kumar of JD(U), Ramulu Pothuganti of TRS, Sunil Tatkare of NCP and other also participated in the discussion.
