About Dalit Bandhu

BACKGROUND:

It is an undeniable fact that people belonging to the Scheduled Castes are the most downtrodden, depressed sections lying at the bottom line of the Indian society. The most inhuman of practice ‘untouchability’ was historically the root cause of this deplorable state that this section of people find themselves in. The backwardness is not just economic as it is social too. Telangana is no different in this aspect of injustice, but the Government, recognising the grave injustice that has been meted out to these sections of the society over centuries, has strongly decided to come up with a revolutionary intervention which will propel the Scheduled Caste families into economic development in a big way thereby ensuring social dignity too.

STRATEGY:

As part of multi-pronged approach, in addition to existing entitlements like food security, education and social security, a different strategy with a new initiative "Telangana Dalita Bandhu" is introduced to intensify the level of financial assistance to SC households for establishment of suitable income generating economic support schemes as the delivery of credit by banks in the form of loans has become a constraint.

OBJECTIVE:

One time capital assistance @ Rs.10.00 lakhs per SC family for all SC eligible families as 100% grant / subsidy to establish a suitable income generating schemes as per their choice (without bank loan linkage).
