Special Development Councils (SDCs) UPSC NOTE


  • Tribal communities' identity is rooted in their culture and deep connection with nature, but as societies modernize, tribal cultures tend to fade away.

  • The Central government's developmental projects for tribal people often lack consideration for tribal cultures, focusing solely on development-driven indicators.

  • The Odisha government introduced the Special Development Councils (SDCs) initiative in 2017 to preserve, promote, and popularize tribal culture while ensuring economic development in tribal regions.

  • The SDCs initiative covers 62 tribes in Odisha and focuses on promoting tribal languages, conserving sacred groves, supporting tribal artisans, and facilitating knowledge transfer.

  • The SDCs is a state-funded program that factors in the cultural context, giving autonomy to the Council Fund for project implementation.

  • The SDC model includes small tribal groups in decision-making processes, addressing intra-tribal majoritarianism and ensuring true representation of the community.

  • The vision of inclusive growth and community-led development is an actionable strategy in Odisha's development model.

  • The success of the SDC model suggests that the Central government should consider similar culture-sensitive and inclusive approaches in tribal-dominated States like Madhya Pradesh, Sikkim, and the north-east.
