ST tag for Medaras: Bill tabled in LS

A Constitution Order Amendment Bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday to include Medara community in the list of Scheduled Tribes in Karnataka.

The Medara community in the State had been demanding a ST Tag.  The ST list comprises 50 communities in the State at present.

The Tribal Ministry proposal, made on the recommendation of the State, seeks to amend the entry at serial no 37 occurring under Part VI, relating to Karnataka of the Schedule to the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950, and insert the community after the community 'Meda' ST of Karnataka.
