About TDD


State Government has actively planned for the focused development of the areas dominated by Scheduled Tribes. The long term goal of the State's interventions for the Scheduled Tribes is to improve their quality of life by increasing and ensuring their access to education, health care and income generation.

The Tribal Development Department (TDD) was created as a wing of the Social Justice & Empowerment Department, and is functionally independent.

Its functions include :

  • Development of Scheduled Tribes
  • Development of Integrated Tribal Development Project (ITDP) area
  • Supervision of Tribal Sub Plan (TSP)
  • Prevention of atrocities against Scheduled Tribes
  • Working with caste-related issues

The Social Justice & Empowerment Department handles tasks related to reservation in jobs, policy for Ashram Shalas and issues connected with nomadic tribes. The responsibility to develop tribal areas has been entrusted to functional Departments, while the responsibility to take care of the rights and benefits of the tribal population primarily rests with the Tribal Development Department.
