The legislative mechanism of the state has made strenuous efforts to uplift the conditions of tribal people and have achieved partial success. In spite of their efforts, the conditions of tribal people continues to be pathetic and deplorable and the existing situation demands immediate attendance.Awareness programs by both government and NGOs can play an important role in educating the tribals. Land pattas should updated and transfer the land to eligible as per succession as most of the original land owners are expired. 2. In few cases, restored land is with distant relatives for various reasons. This should be decided and update the records accordingly. This enables eligible to get loans from banks or other government schemes. 3. Though most of them have podu land in addition to the patta land, in most cases, they do not have pattas. This issue may be settled immediately. In most cases, the ALTRA land is not enough to sustain families due to increase in family members. 4. Awareness programmes may be conducted about these Acts among tribals.
