An evaluative study of developmental measures for gujjars in Jammu and Kashmir


Mudasir Ahmad Rather, Dr. S Balamurugan

The greatest challenge that the Government of India has been facing since independence is the proper provision of social justice to the scheduled tribes. Development of tribal population has been a major concern of the nation builders, central and state governments, policy makers, nongovernment organizations, social scientists and social reformers. We have Constitutional provisions for social, economic, educational, political, administrative, health and sanitation achievements of the tribal people of our nation. Since our independence various policies, strategies, approaches and models to tribal development have been conceived. From the very beginning of the 1st five years plan to the present 12th five years plan, a number of programmes of tribal development have been formulated and implement. In this paper an attempt has been made to access and evaluate the impact of various developmental programmes on the socio economic transformation of the transhumant tribal’s of Jammu & Kashmir. The study was conducted among the tribes of Jammu and Kashmir in general and Gujjars in particular. For this study, data from both primary as well as secondary sources were used. The study reveals that in spite of the implementation of various policies and programmes for their development by the state and central governments, these tribals continue to live in pathetic conditions. An interview schedule was framed to elicit information from respondents.
