During the workshop, Yimok Phom, Assistant District Programme Manager of the Rural Development Department, discussed various centrally sponsored schemes under the DRDA, such as MGNREGA, NRLSM, PMAY (G), RGSA, and the XV Finance Commission.
In his presentation, Imsumeren, Project Officer, Department of Tribal Affairs, Nagaland, gave a brief overview of the Tribal Affairs Department, which was created on August 4, 2019, after being split from the Planning Department, with the goal of overseeing and ensuring effective implementation of various Tribal Welfare Schemes/activities undertaken by the Ministry of Tribal Affairs.
In terms of the various plans undertaken by the department, he stated that there are currently 39 projects in progress. He went on to say that there are Special Central Assistance to Tribal Sub Schemes (SCA to TSS) with the goal of transforming all tribal-dominated villages into “Adarsh Grams” (model villages). He did say, however, that the programme had yet to be implemented, though the application has been sent to the MoTA under the revised criteria.
He also mentioned Eklavya Model Residential School (EMRS) which was established with the goal of providing quality education to ST students in remote places in accordance with JNV, KGBV, and KV. At the moment, three EMRS are operational, and the MoTA has approved the construction of additional 19 EMRS across the state.
EAC Solo in his remark shared his insights on social welfare schemes being taken up in Chumoukedima.
