(a) a member of a SC or ST
(b) a victim of human trafficking
(c) a person with disability
(d) a person under circumstances such as victim of a mass disaster like flood, drought, earthquake
(e) an industrial workman
(g) in custody-including in a protective home, juvenile home or in a psychiatric hospital or psychiatric nursing home
(h) in receipt of annual income less than 1 lac (in case of Delhi. The same might vary in other states)
