Ministry of Tribal Affairs Mainstreaming Marginalized through a Consolidation Exercise, says Ramesh G at PHD Chamber
 

Ministry of Tribal Affairs on Wednesday announced that the government is trying its best to mainstream the marginalized through a consolidation exercise with institutions such as IIMs and industry associations like PHD Chamber as well as self help groups that are active in the states like Andhra and West Bengal and the like, according to its Joint Secretary Mr. Ramesh G.
 

Addressing a National Seminar on Mainstreaming the Marginalized organized by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here today, Mr. Ramesh informed that the government has allocated a budget of Rs.5,000 crores to enable it facilitate integration of marginalized with mainstream.
 

In Andhra and West Bengal, a great deal of self help groups have been active in many ways whose objective is to improve the lot of vulnerable and the Ministry of Tribal Affairs is in talks with them for the desired objectives, he pointed out.
 

Mr. Ramesh G who is also CMD, National Scheduled Tribe Finance and Development Corporation informed that his ministry has already been engaged with an intense exercise of building bridges with IIM Kolkata to find solutions as to how mainstreaming marginalized could be effective through professional institutions such as IIMs.
 

Speaking on the occasion, MD, DSFDC, Mr. Narendra Kumar explained that so long as institutions such as executives, legislature, bureaucracy and fourth state are filled with majority of  populace of upgraded cast and creed system, marginalization of vulnerable and poorer people with mainstream is unlikely.
 

He praised the Prime Minister Modi for his pious attention with which he has been trying his best to integrate the marginalized with mainstream but added that the prevailing institutionalized system until is purged and cleansed with graded cast mindset, the poorer and marginalized are unlikely to be uplifted.
 

Among others who spoke on the occasion comprised Assistant Country Director-Poverty Unit, United Nations Development Programme, Ms. Alka Narang; Vice President, PHD Chamber, Mr. Anil Khaitan and its Sr. Secretary, Dr. Jatinder Singh.
