Howsoever the UPA government and its coalition partners especially the leftists oppose the RSS, the government had to laud the service activities being rendered by various RSS associated organisations in different parts of the country. About one third of the 14 voluntary organisations whom the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs has identified in its annual report for their outstanding services, are the RSS associated organisations. The Ministry of Tribal Affairs implements its welfare schemes for all-round development of Vanvasis with the help of voluntary organisations. The Ministry has identified 14 organisations, which produced remarkable results through the better implementation of its various schemes. The Ministry has kept them in special category to grant relaxations while providing grant for next year.
The list of 14 organisations includes Vidya Bharati, Sewa Bharati, Deendayal Research Institute, New Delhi, Akhil Bharatiya Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram, Bharat Sewashram Sangh, Rashtriya Sewa Samiti, Andhra Pradesh, Vivekanand Girijan Kalyan Kendra, Karnataka, Rama Krishna Mission and organisations associated with it, Bharatiya Adim Jati Sewak Sangh and its associated organisations, Swami Vivekanand Yuva Andolan Karnataka, Government of India Society, Pune, Akhil Bharatiya Dayanand Sewashram Sangh, New Delhi, DAV Managing committee, New Delhi and Vinoba Niketan, Kerala.
Highlighting the role of these organisations, the Ministry in its annual report has said that the organisations had done a good job in implementing the government schemes and they would be encouraged in implementation of developmental schemes in coming years. The Ministry is working on four major schemes with the participation of voluntary organisations. They include grant to the organisations working for the welfare of the Vanvasis, literacy campaigns among Vanvasi women, running of vocational training centres and development of various Vanvasi communities. The report said that the fund granted to voluntary organisations in the first four years of the Tenth Plan was utilised hundred per cent.
