According to 2011 census, the adivasiâ€™s (Tribes) of India account for 109 million and represent 8.6 percent of the countryâ€™s total population. Article 342 of the Indian Constitution includes a schedule (list) of the adivasi communities that are economically and socially disadvantaged. The adivasiâ€™s are also known as indigenous people of the land. The deployment of political rationality and market economy has always been threat to adivasi life in India as it functions against the adivasi rationality. Particularly the introduction of new economic policy from 1990s which opened Indian economy to global market forces has effected adivasi self, home and habitat severely. Adivasiâ€™s are denied their right over their resources and evicted and displaced from their land and habitat brutally. The economic liberalization, privatization and globalization (LPG) model of development reduced relatively independent adivasi economy to dependency. Particularly this model of development has completely excluded adivasiâ€™s from the development process itself. This paper aims to explore history of adivasi exclusion and problematise elitist nature of Indian political economy which has always cornered interests of elites.
