The tribes were considered to be “people of the forest’ whose special habitat in the hilly and forest regions made their economic, social and political attributes. At present, except the North-Eastern states, there are no areas of the country which are inhabited exclusively by tribal people.

The regions where the tribal population is concentrated, their economic and social conditions are much more than those of non-tribals.

However, after independence Adivasi lands were acquired for new river and dam projects. Consequently, millions of Adivasis were displayed without any adequate compensation or rehabilitation.

The resources of Adivasis are being taken away in the name of *03110031 development’ and ‘economic growth’.

For example :- Projects such as Sardar Sarovar Dam on the river Narmada and the Polavaram Dam on a river, the Godavari would displace hundreds of thousands of Adivasis. The policy of economic liberalization is leaving Adivasis to greater destitution.
