What is the purpose of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities Act) 1989?

0

The Act has been passed to prevent offences/atrocities against members of SCs and STs by non-SCs and STs and to provide relief and rehabilitation to victims of such offences. It was felt that even after more than 40 years of independence various gross indignities against SCs and STs have not diminished despite previous legislations.
