  • Published
    12th Jan, 2022

"Scheduled Tribes" means such tribes or tribal communities or parts of or groups within such tribes or tribal communities as are deemed under article 342 to be Scheduled Tribes for the purposes of the Indian Constitution.

STs are spread across various states and UTs and constitute around 8.2% of total population of India as per Census 2011. It is well known that Scheduled tribes are behind the mainstream society in education, health as well as other social and economic indicators. Thus, using data from Census 2011 and annual report by the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, this data story aims to understand tribal demography and educational indicators.

Some schemes for development of STs include Tribal sub plan, MGNREGA, Eklavya school and Stand up India.

Steps needed for STs-

  • Development of education and health indicators.
  • Creating awareness about constitutional and legal rights, existing schemes and plans for STs.
  • Conservation of tribal values, knowledge, languages and culture for an inclusive society.
