After independence protective, prohibitive, reservative developmental and welfare majors have been taken by our Central and State Government to bring the denizens in the main stream of national development. Billions of money has been spent for upliftment of 8.08 percent people who have been enlisted as Scheduled Tribes, but there are certain basic aspects, which did not develop as desired. This is why even at this Stage, we talk of evolving alternative, models for tribal development.
The pathetic situation of tribal life has attracted the attention of academicians to present diagnostic studies afresh. This volume has been prepared with the same objective.
In this volume care has been taken to accommodate the articles of those scholars who are related to innovative in the field of tribal development. Their contribution will definitely serve for upliftment of the tribal people in particular and weaker sections in general.
