IMS Law College, Noida in collaboration with the Center Consumer Protection Laws and Public Policy is organizing a National Seminar on “Development of SCs & STs in Globalised World: Legal Issues & Challenges”.
Date: 21st May, 2016
Venue: IMS Seminar hall, IMS Campus, IMS Law College, A-8 B, institutional area, Sector 62, Noida
According to one of the leading newspapers of India it is estimated that Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes constitute 25% of the total population of India. Most of these classes remain at the lowest stratum of the society, due to various factors like low level of literacy, education, health, primitive occupations and extreme levels of poverty, lack of control over resources and political participations.
Since the education level is low among them, they cannot fight a legal battle to claim their rights. As a result, they are falling into the trap of unlawful outfits. India is a country with highly rigid caste-based hierarchal structure with ascending orders of privileges, descending order of disabilities, which has been in tradition for the last 3000 years. There is an overwhelming majority in the country which is still backward socially economically, educationally and politically.
In the Indian scenario when we peep into the past of the role and status of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, no major changes so far can be discernible. Although a lot of development programmes and policies have been formulated for the overall upliftment of these weaker sections of the society, no major breakthroughs have been achieved so far.
After independence, the Constitution of India piloted by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar prescribed certain protection and safeguards for the SCs and STs with the objective of promoting their educational, economic and political interests. The elite class among the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes is taking benefits of all the governmental schemes running for their communities’ upliftment but on the other side of the coin, there is a large majority of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes who are still living a wretched life.
Globalization has helped the economy to revitalize itself but did little good to the SCs & STs in terms of enabling them to participate in the economy. They have been hardly getting an opportunity to contribute to the sectors that have expanded phenomenally due to economic reforms owing to their low skills, lack of adequate training and lack of confidence accumulated over centuries due to geographic and social exclusion. The establishment of power plants, construction of mega irrigation projects, acquisition of lands – all ostensibly in the name of boosting the economy – have adversely impacted their ownership of their resource base.
The six decades of development led to a progressive erosion of their traditional rights over their land resources including the forests. This can aptly be measured in terms of the lacunae in the laws, lacuna in the policy making and faulty implementation. It is the high time for the people from the various fraternities become aware about the issues related to the Indian tribal population. They should own up the responsibility of social engineers and carve a niche for them, so that their issues can be resolved and more organized steps can be taken for their social justice.IMS Law College, Noida takes this opportunity and proposes to organize a National Seminar on: “Development of SC & STs in Globalised World: Legal Issues and Challenges” on 21st May, 2016.
