For tribal welfare, Modi seeks greater convergence of schemes

 Emphasising the need to improve the outcomes of various interventions for tribal welfare, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday called for enhanced convergence of the several schemes aimed at their welfare.

Chairing a high-level review meeting on tribal welfare initiatives, including Vanbandhu Kalyan Yojana, the Prime Minister said that the various wings of the Centre and state governments should work in tandem to meet the targeted objectives within the specified time frame, an official release said.

The PM also enquired about the progress in the efforts to map the sickle cell anaemia among the tribal population and sought to know the impact on tribal communities of the 'Jan Dhan Yojana' and other recently-launched social security schemes.
