The Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Amendment) Bill, 2022, was an amendment to the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950.

Union Tribal Minister Arjun Munda had tabled the Bill in Parliament and sought to include the Darlong community as a sub-tribe of the Kuki community in the list of Scheduled Tribes.

The move comes months after Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb sought from the Centre to include Darlong as a sub-tribe of the Kuki in official documents.
