Adivasi Vikas Vibhag Application

The tribal people lack entrepreneurial initiative. Mere management of development programmes would not make tribal development a sustainable one with fair and equitable distribution of income, power and opportunities. To ensure man nature-society symbiotic relationship without generating conflicts between them emphasis should be laid on maximization of creative participation and minimization of
socio-economic disorder.

One can expect creative participation of tribals in mainstream is by empowering tribals with various government schemes for uplifting their socio economic status. With vision of reaching out to every tribal person in most effective manner, Additional Tribal Commissioner,

Shri Vishnu Savra in a grand program held at Balgandarva Rang Mandir, Pune.
