The tribes constituting 8.61percent of total population of India in 2011 are the most deprived population group in India. The centuries old physic-socio- psychological isolation has been responsible for backwardness of tribes. The tribal groups are still at different stages of pre- capitalist with dependent on subsistence economy. The fear of disintegration, mass poverty, ignorance about modern education and exploitation by money lenders has been responsible for low standard of living. Low literacy among scheduled tribes is result of inadequate facilities, illiterate home environment and non recognition of tribal languages. Although, many steps have been taken for their development, still their position is not satisfactory. The present paper is an attempt to analyze the spatial distribution of tribes indicating their problems with some solutions.
