Tribal community in Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing tangible changes at the ground level for their better lives. Recently LG Manoj Sinha announced special tribal awards.
He termed the establishment of Tribal Chairs a milestone in academic research and preserving the cultural heritage of the tribal community. ‘It will bridge the gap in research, institutional support. The collaboration will work towards preservation of rare books, language styles, socio-cultural heritage and most importantly, the documented history can be digitized’, he added.
He said Tribal Research Institute in J&K is preserving tribal cultural heritage, felicitating outstanding achievers from tribal communities, identifying problems related to tribals, pursuing research activities for capacity building to fully realize their potential.
Guided by the high ideals of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas’ of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, the UT administration is not only proudly appreciating the indispensable contribution of tribal society but also steadfastly moving towards establishing a new social order based on social equity and social harmony in the Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Lt Governor observed.
Government has evolved an effective and comprehensive strategy, being executed at grassroots level for enhancing income of tribal families and providing life-fulfilling opportunities to youth, best possible medical care facilities and bringing each family under social security net.
