MINISTER OF STATE FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT
(SHRI VIJAY SAMPLA)

(a) & (b): Yes Sir. The strategy of the Twelfth Five Year Plan to follow a target group-wise approach for economic, social and educational development of various castes is being successfully implemented by the Government. Initiatives for empowerment of the target groups include schemes aimed at social, educational and economic empowerment of these groups through programmes for scholarships, hostels, skill training, concessional loans for self-employment, etc. Details may be seen at Annexure-I.

(c): The target group-wise approach of the Twelfth Plan would be broadly continued in the coming years. However, based on experiences gained in the implementation of the schemes through regular monitoring and findings of evaluations undertaken, necessary modifications would be made in these schemes/programmes from time to time on need basis, to improve the outcomes. Further, under the revised allocation of business rules, the Department of Social Justice & Empowerment has been mandated to monitor the progress of Department-wise /scheme-wise budgetary allocation for the welfare of scheduled castes as also their intended outcomes, on a regular basis.
