National Commission for De-Notified and Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribes
The National Commission for De-Notified and Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Tribes (NCDNT) was constituted in December 2014 by the government for the period of 3 years. It was established under the aegis of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to study various developmental aspects of the de-notified, nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes.
The Central Government recently told the Parliament that the NCDNT has launched several welfare schemes for the de-notified tribes. These include scholarship schemes for the minors belonging to the DNTs. A Development and Welfare Board for De-Notified, Nomadic and Semi-Nomadic Communities (DWBDNCs) was also set up by this commission.
