Human Rights Defenders Training – 2024

Training on monitoring implementation of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, and survivors forums was conducted from 13 February 2024 to 10 March 2024 in 12 districts of Tamil Nadu: Ariyalur, Dharmapuri, Erode, Kallakurichi, Kanyakumari, Madurai, Salem, Thanjavur, Theni, Tiruchirappalli, Tirupathur, and Tiruvannamalai.

The trainings and forums reached out to 98 survivors (51 female, 47 male) with a total participation of 475 witnesses and Dalit and Adivasi Human Rights Defenders (DAHRD). In addition to assisting the survivors with documentation and further preparation for their cases, they were briefed on their rights, relief, reimbursements (travel allowance and maintenance expenses, TAME), and socioeconomic rehabilitation, and how to access them by DAHRDs and lawyers. DAHRDs and lawyers were also updated on the rights of victims and witnesses, procedures, and enhanced entitlements under the amended Act.
