The Union Cabinet has approved the introduction of a bill to modify the list of Scheduled Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh.

The following changes will be made in list of Scheduled Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh: Deletion of ‘Abor’ in serial No. 1, as it is the same as ‘Adi’ in Serial No. 16. Replace Tai Khamti’ instead of ‘Khampti’ at serial No. 6.
Inclusion of ‘Mishmi-Kaman’ (Miju Mishmi), Idu (Mishmi) and Taraon (Digaru Mishmi) in serial No. 8. Inclusion of Monpa, Memba, Sartang, Sajolong (Miji) in serial No. 9 in lieu of ‘Momba’. Inclusion of ‘Nocte’, “Tangsa’, Tutsa’, ‘Wancho’ in lieu of ‘Any Naga Tribes’ in serial No. 10 in list of Scheduled Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh.The rationale for the proposed amendments are, deletion of Abor – Removal of duplication.
Replace Khampti – There is no tribe called ‘Khampti’. Inclusion of Mishmi-Kaman, Idu and Taraon – Existing entry is only of ‘Mishmi’. There is reportedly no such community. Inclusion of Monpa, Memba, Sartang, Wancho – Existing entry is of ‘Any Naga Tribes’. These are reportedly the only Naga tribes in the State. Inclusion of Nocte, Tangsa, Tutsa, Wancho – Existing entry is of ‘Any Naga Tribes’. These are reportedly the only Naga tribes in the State.
