Welcome To Dalit Christians CBCI

The Office for SC /BC is the official body of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India formed for the overall development of the Dalits and Backward Classes. Dalits mean broken people referring to the untouchables who suffer the stigma of untouchability. Realizing its responsibility to uplift the downtrodden, the CBCI General Body meeting held in Goa in 1986 established the Commission for SC/ST/BC. Now the Committee for Tribal Affairs functions as a separate office for Tribal Affairs.
