Budget criticised by Dalit, SC/ST rights activists - Business Standard
The union budget for 2017-18 was criticised by a group of Dalit and Scheduled Caste rights activists here today, for its "paradigmatic shift" in policy from sub plans to welfare-oriented approach and merger of plan and non-plan heads in it. The budget replaces SC Sub Plan (SCSP) and Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) by 'Allocations for welfare of SC and ST' which is a "retrogressive step" as sub plans had been key policy for flow of financial resources to Dalit and Tribal communities in the country, said Paul Divakar in a press conference organised by National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights.
Budget 2017: Is the much-touted hike in SC/ST welfare allocation a 'fraud'? - Yahoonews
Finance minister Arun Jaitley may have boasted about a 35% hike in this year's budgetary allocation for the welfare of Scheduled Castes and 30% for Scheduled Tribes, but an analysis done by the National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) claims that the BJP government played a "fraud". Experts pointed out that the apparent increase in the allocation was because of the Plan/Non-Plan merger, under which general items had been budgeted under SC/ST schemes and funds were merely shifted from one head to the other.
Short-sighted budgetary reforms fail to address tribal issues in India Government rakes up budget by 10 pc for the marginalised - MediaIndia
Keeping the marginalised tribal communities of India in mind, the Union Budget 2017 elevated fund allocation by 10 pc. What lies ahead in terms of proper planning and implementation? Reacting to the Union Budget 2017 on his Twitter handle, Abhay Flavian Xaxa, the National Convenor at National Campaign on Adivasi (Tribal) Rights said, “The Scheduled Caste Sub Plan & tribal sub plan officially disappears from budget 2017. Dalit Adivasis pushed to 1970’s.”

Budget Criticised by Dalit, SC/ST Rights Activists
Vimal Thorat slammed the government for "negligible" allocations for schemes of SC and ST women. "These women continue to be marginalised and suffer from all kinds of discrimination. Within the SC and ST welfare schemes, allocations for women schemes amount to just 1.19 per cent (SC) and 1.68 per cent (ST). Is it something worth considering." she questioned.

Dalits, adivasis get raw deal in Budget
Dalit and Adivasi groups have expressed disappointment at the continued deficit in earmarking of funds for these two deprived communities in this year's Union Budget. An analysis of budgetary allocation by the National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights showed that, like in past years, instead of earmarking 16.6% funds for Dalits, only 7% has been earmarked.

Union Budget is a massive step backwards for Dalits, Adivasis: NCDHR
The Union Budget presented yesterday by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has split opinions; the industrialists, of course, found it cheerful; ratings major S&P believes it is aimed at fiscal improvement. But according to some, the budget was a disappointment for women while others believed the Budget offered little in the way of genuine, job-creating platforms.
Budget 2017: Promises Belied, Dalits, Adivasis Denied Once Again
NEW DELHI: The Union Budget 2017-18 released yesterday is a far cry away from the promises made by the government in the last year. Their priority clearly lies elsewhere and not with the marginalised communities. The danger of merging plan and non-plan has almost invisibilised the sub plans, with the budget moving away from the Sub-Plan policy of targeted budget to welfarism. Further analysis of the Union Budget reveals that the Scheduled Castes Sub Plan (SCSP) and Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) component of the Budget, have been replaced by ‘Allocations for welfare of Scheduled Castes’, under Statement 10A and Allocations for welfare of Scheduled Tribes - Statement 10B.
