Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad launched the Online Grievance Management Portal of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes. Presently the complaints of victims, who are members of Scheduled Caste are processed manually in the commission. The new mechanism has been introduced to handle the complaints in online mode from the victim. The National Commission for Scheduled Castes is an Indian constitutional body established with a view to provide safeguards against the exploitation of Scheduled Castes.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Prasad said, this launching of Online Grievance Management Portal is especially important as today the nation is observing the birth anniversary of one of India’s great luminaries Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. Mr Prasad said, Dr. Ambedkar worked for the upliftment of the marginalised and downtrodden sections of the society. The Minister opined that digital India needs to be a mass movement in the country.
Addressing the gathering, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Rattan Lal Kataria said that the portal will make it easier for the Scheduled Castes population to register their complaint from any part of the country. He said, the portal will enable them to file their application and other atrocity and services related grievances online and to get them addressed in a time bound manner.
