Northern zone SCs/STs Welfare Federation is a registered body comprising of the representatives  of northern states of India. It looks after the interest of Scheduled castes and scheduled tribes residing in the region. It was established in the year 1970 and changed its name  form time to time to best suit to its activities and objectives.
Activities: Presently it is headed by Sh.Viru Mal  Megh as president of the Federation. Looks after the interests of SCs and STs (groups of people included in a list in the Indian constitution for special treatment in order to empower them to overcome disadvantageous position arising due to caste bias in Indian society) belonging to to north India. It consists of representatives from different Departments of the Punjab State. It ensures that constitutional provisions, in particular, adequate representation of SCs and STs in services under the respective states i.e. the desired representation is consistent with the demographic estimate (census figures and this constitutional object is provided/fulfilled by means of prescribing percentage of reservations for that).  The last convention to achieve the aims was held on 04-07-2010 at Ravidas Bhawan, Mohali to consider the various issues relating to Punjab services. Defects, implications and complications noticed in the smooth implementation of constitutional provisions and the government policy were brought to the notice of Government of Punjab for taking remedial measures in this regard. In nut shell it struggles for the constitutional rights of all SC and ST communities. In case of its violation by the State, it struggles for restoration of rights.  The federation plans protests, dharnas and rallies whenever and wherever needed.
The forum organizes coordinated activities. 



Head Quarters: Ravidas Bhawan, Phase VII, SAS Nagar (Mohali), Punjab.
