Anji A, A Sumithira
The state of Telangana aims to provide income generation, unemployment and socio-economic conditions for tribal development through social welfare schemes. However, the diversity of issues negatively affects the welfare system. Citizens are lagging behind due to many factors including geographical and cultural isolation, inadequate health facilities, and inability to achieve food security, lack of control over resources and assets, lack of education and skills, malnutrition, inadequate access to shelter and clean drinking water, vulnerability, crime and violence. All of these challenges will make their lives a difficult task. In view of these issues, the government seeks to support the Tribals through various welfare schemes. This article examines the socio-economic status of the tribal communities and the government schemes introduced by the Governments of Telangana to assist the tribal communities.
