Scheduled Caste Sub Plan (SCSP) is an important policy meant for channelizing Plan funds for the development of the Scheduled Castes in proportion to their share in the total population. Even after three decades since its introduction, there remain serious gaps in the implementation of this policy. Amidst the debate on poor implementation of SCSP across the country, Andhra Pradesh Government has come out with the landmark SCSP legislation, and the Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment too has prepared a draft national bill on SCSP. This special issue of Budget Track focuses on the different aspects of this critical policy strategy so as to facilitate greater public awareness and the requisite measures for proper enforcement of the same.
