Macro – Analysis of Barriers in Mainstreaming the Tribals

A.KACHHAP | The country is passing through a transitional phase--half way through another plan and I am amazed of times passing out and the need for even more urgency in addressing the problems and barriers faced by the tribal community. Despite various safeguards provided under the Constitution of India and large number of initiatives undertaken for tribal and for their areas, they live with inadequate food, insufficient clothes and temporary shelter, tribal areas are lagging behind rest of the population due to lack of equal opportunity. This scenario is clearly attributed to indebtedness, land alienation, poverty, unemployment, health problems, lack of potable water, lack of housing, weak education, no opportunity for vocational education, communication inability, displacement, depopulation and migration. There is a need to assess the impact of the development programmes and schemes undertaken so far for their welfare and development. Why the problems persist ?
