Tribal Panchsheel

It was born out of the idea that the uplift of tribal people had to take place through a slow process of their ―modernisation, even while their culture had to be preserved. Nehru gave his five fundamental principles for tribal development:

  • Non-imposition:- People should develop along the lines of their own genius, and the imposition of alien values should be avoided.
  • Tribal rights in land and forest should be respected.
  • Teams of tribal’s should be trained in the work of administration and development. Introducing too many outsiders into tribal territory should be avoided.
  • Tribal areas should not be over administered or overwhelmed with a multiplicity of schemes
  • Results should be judged not by statistics or the amount of money spent, but by the human character that is evolved.
