Promotion of Tribal Culture

The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has not received any recommendations from the State Governments for providing grant to the private institutions for promotion of tribal culture in the current year.
The Ministry of Tribal Affairs runs a Centrally Sponsored Scheme, Research & Training-Grants-in-Aid to Tribal Research Institutes, under which the funds are provided to the State Governments on 50:50 sharing basis between State and Centre for various activities performed by these institutes which include, conducting research on different aspects of tribal life including their languages, art and culture and also setting up of tribal museums for exhibiting tribal artifacts and promotion of tribal culture. 
The Ministry organizes annual National Level Festival “Prakriti” in Delhi and supports State Governments/Union Territories in organizing tribal festivals in their own environment. The Ministry also gives National Tribal Awards under which two awards each of Rs.2.00 lakh (preferably one for a male Scheduled Tribe and other for a female Scheduled Tribe) are given for the Best Janjatiya Achiever covering Sports, Education, Culture, etc.
