The National Scheduled Tribes Finance and Development Corporation (NSTFDC) is an apex organisation set up in 2001 under the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Government of India. Its primary aim is economic upliftment of the Scheduled Tribes by way of providing financial assistance for income generating/ sustainable livelihood activities.

The Corporation has been implementing its various schemes through State Channelizing Agencies, the Regional Rural Banks, PSU Banks (having partnership with NSTFDC) - including the likes of National Cooperative Development Corporation (NCDC), Stree Nidhi, NEDFi, NABKISAN etc. During the last two decades of its existence the Corporation has been able to reach tens of thousands of beneficiaries in the target group across the country.

It is our endeavour that, with an improved delivery system and our relentless concerted effort with our stakeholders, the schemes of NSTFDC reach the whole of the target group. The NSTFDC team is fully committed to the Mission for which the Corporation has been set up. With the support and the joint effort of all our partners, we believe that, one day the dream of the founders of the Corporation will be fulfilled and the flag of NSTFDC will be held high.
