Abstract:
Tribal community is the oldest resident in India. Unfortunately they are neglected and most suppressed community in the country still today. Barind region is rich in the concentration of five tribes (Santal, Munda, Malpaharia, Kora and Mahali). Their socio- cultural and economic activities are different from the other tribal groups. This paper is an attempt to focus on the tribal concentration of the Barind Region, where spatio-temporal distribution, socio-economic status of tribes are analysed followed by the case study of Mahajib nagar village. It is a predominantly tribal village residing three tribes i.e. Santal, Munda and Mahali. Government has declared many policies, schemes for those but how and where these schemes are being used or implemented properly and people get fruitful advantages from these are still relevant debatable questions. In spite of all these development initiatives the tribal in this region are still threatened by severe poverty. As problem of the economic, literacy, livelihood are rampant, the development of Barind region is unthinkable without tribal development.
