Abstract: In the tribal map of our country, Odisha occupies an important place with the largest variety of Scheduled Tribe communities for which it is popularly known as the home land of the Tribal. As many as 62 different tribal communities reside in the state. These people live in contiguous areas traditionally forming their territorial units. In order to protect their interest and preserve their culture along with the development process, special provisions have been made under the ambit of 5th Schedule of the Constitution of India. The idea of Scheduled Area was mooted under the provision to give special treatment to these tribal people and these areas are known as the Tribal Sub-plan Areas (TSP). In Odisha out of 30 districts, 12 districts which comprise a sizeable population of tribal inhabitants are covered under the TSP areas. The entire seven districts such as Kandhamal, Mayurbhanj, Sundergarh, Nowrangpur, Koraput, Malkanagiri, Rayagada and parts of five districts such as Balasore, Keonjhar, Sambalpur, Gajpati and Kalahandi are under its coverage. In a country like India, the seven major infrastructural factors that are most significant in accelerating the pace of economic development are energy, transport, irrigation, finance, communication, education and health. While the first five refer to economic infrastructural facilities, the latter two relate to socialinfrastructure. In this chapter an attempt has been made to provide a picture of development in these districts of the state which helps to calculate composite development index to measure development disparity among these districts of Odisha. The book deals with district wise data on its administrative set-up, demography, educational institutions, literacy rate, vital statistics, GDDP, gender disparity in human development index and infrastructure development, health statistics and indicators, information on agriculture sector such as land utilization pattern, irrigation potential, forest land, operational land holding, crop production etc., information on socio-economic sectors such as ICDS projects, employment generation under MGNREGA, SGSY, beneficiaries under IAY and Mo Kudia, Pension schemes, village electrification status, railway routes and railway stations, communication etc. It is expected that the information as enshrined in this book will cater to need of all sections of researchers, planners and economists in the formulation of new plans and programmes for upliftment of these communities
