Arvind Kumar (Author)
Synopsis Most tribal tracts in Indian states are parts of larger regions and because of difficult hilly terrain and lack of fertile soil in many areas, tribal belts receive marginal attention for development through various kinds of inputs. Communication becomes the first casualty in tribal areas, since the cost of inputs for this purpose is very heavy in relation to returns of development. Secondly, except forestry and horticulture, the scope of agricultural development is limited in the hilly areas. On the other hand, the scope of manpower development is considerably high. With basic education in reading and writing, tribal can be helped to set up skill-based cottage and other processing and manufacturing industries. The other most important strategy of manpower planning is to introduce equity an fair-play for educated and skilled tribal through the policy of reservations of seats in democratic institutions and jobs in state sponsored and managed organizations of all kinds. From this backdrop it can be stated that proper planning for tribal development is must keeping in view of their actual felt needs. Al these issues have discussed in detail in the present work.
