Survey Regarding Tribal and Non-Tribal Benefit Areas

The Government of Maharashtra had proposed an amount of Rs. 2735.57 lakhs under Special Central Assistance to Tribal Sub-Plan during 2011-12 for carrying out Bench Mark Survey. However, the proposal was not considered as it did not conform to the scheme guidelines laid down. 

A proposal was also received from the Government of Maharashtra for 100 per cent assistance of Rs. 3674.43 lakhs to carry out Bench Mark Survey. Clarifications have been sought from the Government of Maharashtra as the Ministry does not give 100 per cent funding under its Grants-in-Aid to Tribal Research Institutes. 

This information was given by the Minister of State for Tribal Affairs Shri Mahadeo Singh Khandela in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
