    The government of Telangana has introduced various welfare and development programs for the upliftment of SC communities in the state. These programs aim to improve their social, political, and economic conditions. The government is providing special schemes to SCs, along with the welfare schemes for other communities.

    One of the recently launched schemes, called Dalit Bandhu, has had a significant impact on the lives of Dalit communities. It has increased social and economic respect for SCs who have faced discrimination for generations. So far, 38,323 eligible Dalits have been identified and given Rs. 3,832.30 crores through this scheme.

    To ensure funds are used for the development of Scheduled Castes and Tribes, the Special Development Fund Act has been implemented. This act prevents the diversion of funds to other schemes. Additionally, the Ambedkar overseas scholarship provides Rs. 20 lakh to Dalit and Tribal students for higher education abroad. Between 2013-14 and 2022-23, 1031 candidates have benefited from this scheme.
