Infuse professional expertise in SC Commission: NAC

Last Updated: Friday, October 26, 2012 - 18:37

New Delhi: The National Advisory Council (NAC), chaired by Sonia Gandhi, on Friday pitched for infusion of professional expertise to strengthen the National Commission for Scheduled Castes.

The panel also wanted the government to put in place a new framework for effective implementation of the Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan (SCSP), under which a proportion of the total plan outlay of a state is set aside for welfare schemes for Dalits.

The NAC today discussed steps to strengthen delivery of various schemes targeted at welfare of Dalits and decided to make recommendations to the government on the essential elements of implementation framework of the SCSP.

"The current `post-facto accounting approach` to SCSP consisting largely of pro-rata accounting of expenditure on SCs in existing schemes has to give way to a robust `pro-active planning approach`," the NAC said in a statement.
