Abstract

Scheduled Tribe (ST) population represents a heterogeneous group scattered in different regions of India. The differences are noticed in language, cultural practices, socio-economic status and pattern of livelihood. The STs are confronted with problems like forced migration, exploitation, displacement due to industrialization, debt traps and poverty. Based on the regional classification with diverse socio-cultural issues, the present paper focuses on the profile of tribal population through an analysis of the socio-economic indicators like literacy, work participation, livelihood, occupational pattern, health, poverty and migration. The impact of industrialization and urbanization on ST population residing in different regions has been highlighted. The paper has been concluded with relevant suggestions with implications for policies with a focus on region specific issues.
