Explanation:

The President can declare an area as a Scheduled Area through an order as mentioned in Article 244(1) of the Constitution.

The criteria for declaring an area as a Scheduled Area include having a viable administrative entity such as a district, block, or taluk. The specific unit within a Scheduled Area can vary based on factors like tribal population, size, and administrative convenience.

It is the Governor of each State with Scheduled Areas who is responsible for making an annual report to the President regarding the administration of the Scheduled Areas in that State. The executive power of the Union extends to giving directions to the State regarding the administration of the Scheduled Areas.
