The Scheduled Tribe population represents one of the economically impoverished and marginalized groups in India. With a population of more than 10.2crores, India has the single largest tribal population in the world. This constitutes 8.6 percent of the total population of the country (Census of India, 2011). The Government of India has accorded high priority and adopted multifaceted development strategies to promote socio-economic growth of Scheduled Tribes (STs) as their human development indicators with regards to health, education, gender and other indices are well below the national average.

Various schemes and programmes are being implemented by MoTA such as Special Central Assistance to Tribal Sub Scheme (SCA to TSS); Grant under Article 275(1) of the Constitution of India; Post-Matric Scholarship for ST Students; Conservation-cum-Development Plan for Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups, Support to Tribal Research Institutes, Grant in Aid to Voluntary organizations etc. for development of the STs in addition to the protective legislations such as Scheduled Tribes and other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 (FRA) etc.
The partnership between the Ministry of Tribal Affairs and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) focuses on strengthening implementation of various programmes and schemes for tribal development as well as effectuating innovations in programmatic activities. Within the above scope, the services of the Research Officer will be required to provide technical support to the Ministry of Tribal Affairs.
