Abstract: Change is brought about by digital possibilities. This transition is vital, especially when one considers rural India's struggle to sustain social services, access to education, work opportunities, and other necessities in the face of population changes. The establishment of a highly fragmented and highly specific niche society for any imaginable type of cultural growth is enabled by Digitalization, which enables the development of widely scattered, interacting youth for cultural movements. Rural India is a significant contributor to the country's economy, accounting for over 46% of national income. The digital divide between urban and rural India is still very wide even though the number of Internet users in rural India is rising. Internet penetration in rural India was approximately 33%, compared to 99% in urban India, according to the most recent TRAI data.This disparity is mostly caused by two factors: a lack of infrastructure and a lack of knowledge. The Indian government has begun the "Digital India" effort to bridge the gap. One of the program's main goals is to develop the country's digital infrastructure, particularly in rural India. Jammu & Kashmir is home to a diverse range of tribal people that have established themselves in every nook and cranny of the rugged terrain. The state's tribal inhabitants are particularly passionate about Digital India. They are becoming more and more knowledgeable about the numerous facets of this programme in their society and elsewhere every day. However, their society has a number of urgent difficulties related to digitalization, including, to name a few, distribution of reservation facilities that is not consistent, linguistic issues, financial issues, a lack of appropriate direction, communication issues, and social inertia. The government must act to address these problems by making some necessary corrections. Examining how digitalization has impacted tribal societies in J&K is the goal of this study.This thesis will be extensively studying the current status of Digitalization in rural areas of J&K, as well as the extent to which Digitalization has aided the lives of tribal people in J&K, and the digital empowerment of such societies that has so far been provided through Digitalization programmes. It will look at the overall benefits and drawbacks that Digitalization has brought to different tribal cultures. This study will also lead us to suggesting several remedial measures for improving Digitalization and digitally empowering the tribal people of J&K to a greater extent than ever before.
