Title: Need to include Parivara and Talavara Communities in Karnataka in the list of Scheduled Tribes.
SHRI S.D.N.R. WADIYAR (MYSORE): Sir, the Nayaka community belonging to Karnataka State has been included in the list of Scheduled Tribes when the list was updated on all India basis. But the synonyms of Nayaka have been left out from the list of Scheduled Tribes. So, in 1984, the State Government of Karnataka had brought it to the notice of the Union Government and requested for the inclusion of the synonyms of Nayaka, namely, Parivara and Talavara in the list of Scheduled Tribes. Accordingly, the Government was pleased to include in the list the Nayak synonyms, namely, Valmiki Beda, Naik, Nayakda, and Nayaka. But, unfortunately, Talavara and Parivara (Raj Parivara) have been left out. These communities even hold marriages of their children as they are synonyms of Nayaka community and their culture is the same. In this regard, I would like to submit that a number of Members of Parliament from Karnataka State had submitted a memorandum to the Central Government in 1988 to include these communities in the list of Scheduled Tribes.
The people of these communities are really very much agitated as these two communities have not been included in the list of Scheduled Tribes. The students and Government employees belonging to the above synonyms are put to difficulties. They are deprived of the facilities in educational institutions and Government services.
As such, I demand that these synonyms Parivara (Raj Parivara) and Talavara communities be included in the list of Scheduled Tribes immediately.
