  • The communities that were recently added to the list were the Hatti tribe in the Trans-Giri region of Sirmour district in Himachal Pradesh, the Narikoravan and Kurivikkaran hill tribes in Tamil Nadu, and the Binjhia in Chhattisgarh, who were listed as ST in Jharkhand and Odisha but not in Chhattisgarh.
  • Additionally, the Cabinet approved a proposal to move the Gond community, which is present in 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh, from the Scheduled Caste list to the ST list.
  • These comprise the five divisions of the Gond community (Dhuria, Nayak, Ojha, Pathari, and Rajgond).

Technique of Inclusion

  • Before the list is forwarded to the Cabinet for a final decision, the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes must first approve it.
