Even with the constitutional status of preferential option, a large section of tribals all over India fall under the category below the Poverty Line. Though constituting less than eight percent of total Indian population, tribals are forced to migrate both seasonally and on permanent basis to the most peripheral rural areas and the most disadvantaged sections of urban areas. Since migration of tribals as a phenomenon has emerged over a period of time, it need a historical as well as a contextual analysis. Migration of people is only a symptomatic of underneath reality, which grapples individuals and groups. Social and economic reality of people compels them to migrate to destinations, which provide some hope for betterment on either fronts. Migration of tribals is closely related with the development debate. Poverty induced migration follows dynamics where they move from poverty to pauperization. The study attempts to couch the condition of migrating tribals vis-à-vis the initiative of Planned Development undertaken by the country. Taking various development parameters, the study tries to analyze the conditions of tribals with an effort to throw light as to how each variable needs up-gradation for the benefit of tribals. Land ownership, skill up-gradation, education and creation of better opportunities are some of the key variables, which will bring about social mobility, empowerment and emancipation of people, the study concludes.
