The Directorate of Welfare of Scheduled Castes, Assam was established in 1989 under the administrative control of the Department of Plain Tribes and Backward Classes. Prior to establishment of this Directorate, all schemes for the welfare of Scheduled Castes were dealt by the Directorate of Plain Tribes and Backward Classes. After setting up of the Directorate of Welfare of Scheduled Castes all schemes have been transferred from the Directorate of W.P.T & B.C to this Directorate. The Directorate of Welfare of Scheduled Castes is implementing a number of some socio-economic schemes for welfare of Scheduled Castes people. The Directorate is headed by a senior level ACS officer. There is one Deputy Director, one Research Officer, one Assistant Research officer, two Research Assistants, one Superintendent, one Accountant and other assistants. As this Directorate has no District or Sub-Divisional level set-up, schemes are implemented through the Sub-Divisional Welfare Officers under the guidance of Sub-Divisional Scheduled Castes Development Boards. The Sub-Divisional SC Development Board is set-up in each Sub-Division of Plain Districts of Assam and attached to the Sub-Divisional Welfare Office to formulate the SCSP schemes of the Development Departments and also to review the progress of the schemes implemented by the development Departments in the Sub-Division. The Pre-Matric scholarship and grants-in-aid schemes and FOIG scheme of this Directorate are being implemented through the Sub-Divisional Welfare Officers while the Post-Matric scholarship are being distributed through the Project Director, I.T.D.Ps. The Project Director and Sub-Divisional Welfare Officer are under the administrative control of the Directorate of WPT & BC.
