The Institute of Human Development’s visiting professor, Professor Virginius Xaxa, underlined, “There are notable disparities in terms of the levels of tribal development due to the diversity and geographic distribution of the tribal communities in terms of states and regions.

For instance, there has been little progress made equally in schooling. The majority of Northeastern states, including Mizoram and Nagaland, have excellent literacy rates of 91.51 percent and 80.04 percent, respectively, according to the 2011 Census.”

In post-independent India, the issue of tribal development is an urgent one. To elevate and better their situation, a number of policies and programmes were implemented. Since becoming autonomous, a number of programmes and policies have been implemented with the goal of improving the living conditions of the tribes with a focus on food security, employment, health, education, and income production.
