    The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has formed a Committee of Secretaries to look into the concerns raised by Scheduled Castes communities, such as the Madigas, who feel they are not receiving their fair share of benefits. The committee will be chaired by the Cabinet Secretary and includes Secretaries from various ministries.

    The first meeting of the committee is scheduled for January 23, and it will be supported by the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment. The government has received requests from states like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka to sub-categorize Scheduled Castes, including the Madiga community, due to unequal distribution of reservation benefits and welfare schemes.
