The committee has been mandated to formulate and implement concrete policy and programmes for the development, uplift and protection of the country’s Badi community and also to undertake initiatives for improving their living standard. It is also to run various development programmes for bringing the Badi community in to the national development mainstream.
It may be recalled here that the Legislature-Parliament’s committee on women, children and social welfare had called on the government to constitute the Badi Development Committee last year. RSS
