Abstract:
Gujjars and Bakerwals constitute more than 11.9% population in the state of Jammu and Kashmir (census 2011). It is the only Schedule Tribes population in the state which preserve their traditional values and culture throughout the ages. They are primarily nomadic in character and moved from one place to another in search of pastures for their cattle. Due to seasonal migration they suffered a lot, it made a great impact on the education of their children, and they face health issue because of unavailability of health facilities, moreover, they lost their cattle during their journey due to bad weather or due to some unavoidable circumstance which shattered the economy of Gujjars and Bakerwals. Different research works and findings reveal that the condition of Gujjars and Bakerwals is not good as compare to other sections of the society. In this Research Paper, an attempt was made to understand the Social, Economic, and Political, condition of Tribal (Gujjars and Bakerwals) in Jammu and Kashmir. This Research paper also recommends some suggestions in order to resolve the issues or challenges faced by the tribal community of the state.
