Tribal Sub Plan

The “Tribal Sub Plan” programme runs by the Government of India with the main objective to promote Scheduled tribes’ economic development through family-oriented schemes by providing resources to the Scheduled tribes family. Planning Commission set up an Inter-Ministerial Committee under the Chairpersonship of Secretary, Planning Commission, to effectively implement TSP as an essential instrument for accomplishing socio-economic growth of tribal farmers. The main objective of TSP scheme is focusing on the empowerment of Tribal farmers through trainings, exposures, education and providing resources. The activities carried out during 2021 include capacity building on improved production and protection techniques of cotton, paddy, green gram, vegetable seeds (kit) and groundnut cultivation.

Exposure visits and awareness training about new technologies in agriculture and allied activities were also organized. Similarly, vocational trainings on agribusiness, skill up gradation, integrated pest management (IPM) programmes, reduced tillage or conservation tillage farming and created awareness on personal protection while spraying and use of agrochemicals among scheduled tribe (ST) farmers.As women farmers play important role in agriculture, the aim of project was to mobilize women farmers from ST families to form self-help groups (SHGs) through awareness programmes, provide them technical assistance through capacity building and motivate them to generate income round the year through vegetable cultivation, nutri-gardens and other various activities.

As part of the TSP programmes, inputs like improved seeds of cotton, paddy, green gram, Bengal gram and groundnut varieties, vegetable seeds (kit), fungicides & pesticides (IPM in cotton kit), CICR KVK cotton picking bags, pink bollworm pheromone traps and yellow sticky traps for sucking pests management were distributed to the ST farmer beneficiaries from the project areas and adopted villages under TSP programme.
