District Wise DVMC Meetings from 2011 – 2016 in Tamil Nadu

To analyse the implementation of the SCs and STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in districts of Tamil Nadu, HRF asked for the minutes of the District Vigilance and Monitoring Committee (DVMC) meetings held in all districts from 2011 till October 2016.

The DVMCs have the District Collector as the Chairperson, and are to be conducted at least four times a year (Rule 17(1)). The data provided on the RTI request shows that only 126 (40.9%) DVMC meetings were held during the entire period in 9 districts, instead of the mandatory 312. The data for the rest is awaited.
