As per the approved Modalities, the proposals made by State Governments/Union Territory Administrations are initially referred to the Registrar General of India for comments. Proposals agreed to by the RGI are referred to the National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) for comments. Such proposals which have been agreed to by the RGI and the NCSC, as also approved by the Central Government, are incorporated in the Bill, which is introduced in Parliament. As any amendment in the list of Scheduled Castes can be done only by an Act of Parliament in view of clause (2) of Article 341 of the Constitution of India, no time frame can be assigned in the matter.
