India as a democratic nation strives for socio economic upliftment of all sections in the society as well as preservation and protection of tribal culture and their way of life. According to Article 342 of the Constitution, Scheduled tribes are the tribes or tribal communities which have been declared after consultation with the governor as such by the President by public notification. Special attention has been accorded by the framers of our Constitution for the upliftment of the scheduled tribes considered as a disadvantaged section in the society. Enabling provisions for the development and protection of tribals have been provided in our Constitution. These provisions which act as a safeguard and an uplifting measure for the tribes and their society are reflected in this paper.
