|Abstract:||Alienation of tribal land in the country is one of the major problems and it has been identified as one of the important causes of tribal unrest in India.This book is the outcome of a research work carried out by the Institute in the year 1987. The study was conducted to find out the extent of alienation of tribal land to non tribals in the light of the existing laws. The study was also designed to find out the extent of alienation of tribal land due to the installation of major and medium industrial and irrigational complexes and projects for mining operation leading to displacement of tribals. The field survey was conducted from June to August 1987 in ten tribal villages within the tribal belts and blocks, five tribal villages outside the jurisdiction of tribal belts and blocks, five tribal villages in the hill areas of Assam and five tribal villages affected by installation of the Dhansiri Irrigation Project in Darrang District and the Jagiroad Paper Mill in the Nagaon District. The study found various loopholes in the legal system and suggested various measures to stop the tribal land alienation.|
