The list of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes is State/UT specific. As such a member of Scheduled Caste or Scheduled Tribe is eligible for benefits in his state of origin only. A member of Scheduled Caste or Scheduled Tribe Community, who migrates to other State/UT is not entitled to get Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe benefits, from the state of migration.
