Manmona Singh calls for speedy implementation of Tribal Rights Act

Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Tuesday asked all states to ensure speedy and effective implementation of the Tribal Rights Act in order to enable tribals get their rights over the land.

New Delhi, July 29 : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Tuesday asked all states to ensure speedy and effective implementation of the Tribal Rights Act in order to enable tribals get their rights over the land.

In a letter to Chief Ministers of all states, he reminded them of the need for speedy and effective implementation of the Scheduled Tribes and Traditional Forest Dwellers,Recognition of Forest Rights) Act 2006.

Asking the Chief Ministers to give personal attention to the issue, Dr. Singh said it is important for those states which have large tribal populations to ensure that the opportunity through this landmark legislation is not missed and every genuine claimant is provided with title deeds.

He said that it is primarily the responsibility of the state governments to ensure that a very vulnerable section of the population of our country gets its basic rights over the land which has historically been in its possession.

The Prime Minister said a recent review by the Tribal Affairs Ministry showed that while some states have moved ahead, some others were yet to complete activities related to filing of claims.
