Adivasi Dibas to be celebrated today

August 9 will be celebrated as ‘Adivasi Dibas’ in Bengal. The United Nations has designated August 9 as International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. India’s indigenous, or tribal population is classified as Adivasis, and hence Adivasi Dibas. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be leading the State Government celebrations.

The decision for the celebration was announced by the chief minister on July 11. In the last seven years, the Trinamool Congress Government has been working hard for the welfare and upliftment of people belonging to the backward classes, which includes the Adivasis.

From setting up a separate Tribal Welfare Department to creating the Adibasi Development and Cultural Board, from Sikshashree to reservation, from education loans to career counselling centres – the Government has been striving its utmost for the holistic development of the backward classes.

The State Government has set up the Tribal Development Department for proper advancement of the tribal people of Bangla. The department has introduced various educational facilities and job opportunities for students belonging to scheduled tribes (ST).

The issuance of ST certificates has also increased hugely and the process has been streamlined. The issuance of scheduled tribe certificates per year has almost tripled over the last seven years, from 31,000 during financial year (FY) 2010-11 to 87,875 during FY 2017-18.
