State Annual Reports
All states submit annual reports on the implementation of the Act under Rule 18 of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Rules 1995, which states:
18. Material for Annual Report:
The State Government shall every year before 31 March, forward the report to the Central Government about the measures taken for implementing provisions of the Act and various schemes/plans framed by it during the previous calendar year.

Chief Ministers' Report Card 2015
The State Vigilance and Monitoring Committee (SVMC) meetings are to be conducted every January and July according to Rule 16(2) of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Rules 1995. Conducting the meeting is something that is directly under the control of the chief minister and is an important indicator of their commitment to the effective implementation of this Act, accountability of officials, and the protection of the rights of victims and witnesses.
The citizens reports bring together the data from the state annual report (Rule 18), the state crime record bureau (SCRB), directorate of civil rights enforcement (DCRE, the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Protection Cell under Rule 8 in Karnataka), and RTI requests in the districts.
