Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Mumbai: Tata Institute of Social Sciences, 2015Description: 134p., PB.Subject(s): Tribal Development - MaharashtraDDC classification: 572.954792 Online resources: Click here to access online Summary: The study undertaken by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in collaboration with UNICEF Maharashtra field office on the TSP examined review reports of the various committees, working groups and research reports on the status of socio-economic variables such as literacy, school enrolment, educational attainment, health indicators, per capita income, employment opportunities, access to basic amenities like drinking water, housing, drainage facility and electricity, and the assets possessed. These showed wide gaps between the STs and the general population. The reviews also brought out the tardy implementation of the TSP by the various States/UTs and Central Ministries/Departments, lacunae in policy implementation, allocation and utilization of funds, structural inadequacies at the national, state, district, block and village levels and a need for periodical status reviews and evaluation of the impact of the schemes/programmes. A detailed analysis of TSP formulation, fund flow, implementation and monitoring mechanism followed by the state of Maharashtra, and its impact on the scheduled tribes in the state was done. The report proposes to attempt the following: 1. To understand the planning and implementation strategy adopted in the implementation of the TSP at different levels, from state to village levels. 2. To review the process of flow of funds from state to village levels in the last five years and to analyze its size, distribution and adequacy (in proportion to population), choice of schemes (equity and inclusion of social sectors), disbursement mechanisms, timeliness, and its synchronization with planning cycle. 3. To assess the programmatic as well as financial monitoring and evaluation system practiced in the implementation of TSP and to recommend corrections therein. 4. To investigate the reach of benefits to the needy and to assess the nature of community participation in planning, implementing and monitoring of TSP. 5. To prepare a Tribal Atlas for the state of Maharashtra with particular reference to TSP areas. 6. To recommend policy and program measures for the effective implementation of TSP and for the greater participation of tribal community. This report provides insights into the functioning and programs of the Tribal Development Department and the administrative departments of the State Government with respect to the TSP in Maharashtra from the perspectives of the functionaries of Tribal Development Department, administrative departments at district level, and the tribal community. The report may be a useful source of information not only to the Government but also to NGOs, social workers and the research community in general.
