The Sixth Schedule of the Indian Constitution

Harun Rashid Laskar, Dr. Basanta Kumar Singh

Abstract :

 The Constituent Assembly of India was constituted on the proposal made by the Cabinet Mission. The  Mission had proposed that there should be an Advisory Committee on the rights of the citizens, minorities and Tribal Excluded Areas. Sir Stafford Cripps, the Chairman of the Cabinet Mission, was of the view that a powerful committee should be set up to make proposals for the administration of the tribal areas. Following this suggestion  the Constituent Assembly set up an Advisory Committee on the Tribal Areas under the chairmanship of Sardar Vallabhai Patel with a view to considering the problems of Assam as well as of the tribal people of India. The Advisory Committee, for the convenience, further constituted a Sub–Committee under the chairmanship of Sri Gopinath Bordoloi,  the then Chief Minister of Assam, with a purpose to assess and advise the Constituent Assembly on the future administration of the Tribal and Excluded Areas inhabited by the hill tribes
