Timely release of funds for Tribal Education
In respect of funds under Special Central Assistance (SCA) to Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) and Grants under Article 275(1) of the Constitution, proposals from States are examined/ approved by a Project Appraisal Committee (PAC) to ensure timely release of funds for Tribal education.
From 2016-17 onwards, scholarships are being disbursed directly into beneficiary’s bank account through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and National Scholarship Portal.
A Monthly Expenditure Plan (MEP) is also prepared for enabling timely releases of expenditure.
All Guidelines will be placed on the website of Ministry of Tribal Affairs.
