Tribals in India
Dr. Muneer Ahmad Kumar
The tribals are an indispensable part of our whole population there are a huge number of tribes and sub tribes prevailing in India having their own culture, language, names, dialect etc. The population of tribals according to 2011 census is 10.43 crores constituting 8.6% of the total population of the country. Majority of them (89.97%) live in rural areas while 10.03% live in urban areas. The decadal increase of the tribal population according to the census2001- 2011 has been 23.66% against the 17.65% of the entire population. The tribal development programmes launched by the govt. since independence have not been able to uplift the tribals in a pure sense and proletarianisation still persists in the tribes. There is need of the tribal upliftment to make their social inclusion possible with the whole population.
