Problems, Constraints and Strategies of Economic Upliftment of Tribals in Jharkhand (India)

Manish Gupta

Abstract: Jharkhand is a tribal dominated state, and with the formation of the state in the year 2000, the age old dream of a separate state of tribals came to be true, but the very purpose with which the state was formed, i.e. the economic upliftment of the tribals still remains a dream even after two decades of its formation. The irony is that it is the richest state of India in terms of mineral resources, rightly nicknamed as the 'Ruhr of India', but its per capita income, and economic parameters reflect it as a poor state and places it among the poverty struck least developed states. It can be rightly said that 'poverty exists admist plentitude; in Jharkhand. Poverty and unemployment has pushed its innocent tribal youths towards migration to other states as labors, and some other anti - social activities. The state is not able to tap its human resource to its benefit. This grim picture opines that either right policies for tribal upliftment are not made and or those policies are not implemented at the ground level. Whatever may be the cause, the poverty struck innocent tribals are at the receiving end. This article is a legitimate attempt to identify problems existing at the grass root level in the course of economic upliftment of tribal population in the state. It also scrutinizes the constraints that act as bottleneck in erasing those problems. Lastly, this article sincerely proposes some strategies that may be benignant for the policy framers and its implementers, for the economic upliftment of tribals in Jharkhand. This article may be the 'means' to achieve the 'end; the end being tribal welfare.
