Thane (Maha), June 20: The NALSA (Protection and Enforcement of Tribal Rights) Scheme, 2015, one of the seven social welfare schemes with legal services provision launched by the Centre, will be launched in Maharashtra on June 25 in Thane.

"Various issues pertaining to the development of tribals, including education, legal and land issues, would be discussed in the event," Delhi State Legal Authority (DSLA) secretary Durga Prasad Kher said.

"Representatives from the national and state legal aid services, besides several judges from the Supreme court and the High Court are likely to take part," he said.

"National Legal Services Authority (NALSA), to facilitate the tribal people's access to justice, social, economic and political as mentioned in our Constitution, created this scheme after constituting a committee and conducting deliberations," he said.

Kher said the provisions for various laws meant for safeguarding tribals' interests are not implemented stringently, which leads to violation of their legal rights. "This is one of the main reasons for tribals' marginalization, so the scheme is aimed at ensuring that their rights are protected."
