ABSTRACT:
The Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs) constitute the most vulnerable tribal entities in Jharkhand. Their population has remained low, with low levels of literacy and primitive methods of agriculture and livelihood. The present paper explores the trends in PVTGs population and its regional distribution in Jharkhand along with throwing light on their occupational distribution and composition of workforce. The PVTGs derive their livelihood from forests and land resources. They are primitive and archaic in nature. Their literacy level is very low and they suffer from poor health conditions. The PVTGs have not become a part of the mainstream economy because their traditions, cultures, beliefs and practices all remain associated with nature and they add no nominal value to mother nature from which they derive everything which reflects their strong heritage of respecting the natural world and the environment.
