ANSWER 
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF TRIBAL AFFAIRS 
(SHRI JASWANTSINH BHABHOR) 

(a) to (c):Government of India launched “Vanbandhu Kalyan Yojana (VKY)” during 2014-15 for holistic development of tribal people across the country. The VKY has been adopted as a strategic process. This process envisages to ensure delivery of goods and services to the tribal population across the country with outcome- oriented approach while striking at the critical gaps through appropriate convergence of resources and institutional mechanism. In 2014-15, an amount of Rs. 100.00 crore was allocated under VKY, which was released to ten States having Scheduled Areas. During 2015-16, allocation of Rs. 200.00 crores was made for 21 States based on their perspective plan. In 2016-17, only a token provision of Rs. 1.00 crore was made that was released to State Government of Rajasthan. The details of the funds released to the State Governments including Odisha State during the years 2014-15 and 2015-16 under VKY is at Annexure-1. 

Since 2016-17, separate allocation of funds under VKY has been discontinued and it has been envisaged that the fund requirement under the VKY strategy will be fulfilled out of the TSP [now called as Schedule Tribe Component(STC)]funds, which caters to sectoral development including support for education, health, power, roads, sanitation, water supply, livelihood etc. by way of specific fund allocation under various schemes / programmes of concerned Central Ministries and the State Governments. As a part of rationalization of Schemes, convergence of following schemes / interventions of Ministry of Tribal Affairs has been effected from 2016-17 as an Umbrella Programme of Van Bandhu Kalyan Yojana: 

  • (i) Development of Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups. 
  • (ii) Minimum Support Price for Minor Forest Produce. 
  • (iii) Aid to Voluntary Organisations working for the Welfare of Scheduled Tribes 
  • (iv) Tribal Festivals, Research Information and Mass Education 
  • (v) Monitoring and Evaluation 
  • (vi) Development Programmes in the Tribal Areas (EAP)
