they can be used under different topics.

following topics
® Health issues in tribes: They suffer from acute malnutrition
® Geographical distribution of tribes: Odisha- Nagada Hills,
® PVTG tribe example
® Linguistic classification: Juang language- Austro Asiatic
® Infrastructure problem: Poor
® Forest rights: FRA- not implemented
® Bonded labour system locally called goti
You don’t have to memorise them, go through them and make a conscious
effort to integrate them, while you read your notes. Let it organically link your
answers. Make effort to explain issues/concepts/tribal problems with these
case studies. However, be warned, don’t make case study the center of your
answer. This can be counterproductive. Use them as per the demand of your
All the best
