Rights of Scheduled Tribes of India: Acts, Commissions and Recommendations

Prakash Louis (Compiler)
Synopsis The tribals/Adivasis/the indigenous people have a strong culture and value with which they had organized their social, cultural, economic and political administrations and structures. This is precisely the reason why they continue to remain a distinct people inspite of every attempt by the dominant caste and class to bring them under the 'mainstream'. When the country became independent, the tribals made an agreement with the ruling class that they would become the citizens of the independent country and the state in turn would protect their rights. But progressively it is being seen that instead of the rights of the tribals being protected they are being violated constantly and at all levels. Over and above, in the last 60 years, many more commissions, committees were constituted to address the issues of the tribals. All these to a great extent remained on paper and the tribals were subjected to isolation, deprivation, discrimination and exploitation. This book presents the various acts, commissions, recommendations of the commissions enacted and constituted for upholding the rights of the tribals.

About the author

Prakash Louis

Prakash Louis is the Executive Director of the Idan Social Institute, New Delhi. He has been working as a grassroot activist for almost a decade in central Bihar. Collecting primary data about the Naxalite movement was not without its risks, neither is it easily available. After the Lakshmanpur-Bathe massacre (December 1997) in Jehanabad, which mobilized some human rights activists in conscientization activity, the author found an opening into many of these groups and, through them, to some remote villages where radical agrarian movements are changing the landscape of central Bihar. He is author of Jharkhan Rajya: Kiske Liye, Kyon aur Kaise? (on the formation of the new Jharkhan state); The Emerging Hindutva Force: The Ascent of the Hindu Nationalism; and Casteism is More Harrendous than Racism: Durban and Dalit Discourse.
