Dr. Panduranga R, Dr. Manoj Dolli
The problems of tribes have attracted special attention of social reformers and political leaders since the attainment of independence of India. Therefore, planned efforts have been made and series of innovative plans, programmes, structures and institutions have been created with a view to bring about change in the lives of the tribal people. Tribal people constitute a different social group in view of their socio-cultural characteristics and varied geographical setting. The tribal people having their own spirit, world view and community feeling, and their own way of life, are sometimes confused with the planned approaches of development programmes, this research aims to understand the problems and demographic trends of tribal people in the country.
