Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs)

PVTGs (Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups) are more vulnerable among the tribal groups. Due to this factor, more developed and assertive tribal groups take a major chunk of the tribal development funds, because of which PVTGs need more funds directed for their development.

  • In 1975, the Indian Government declared 52 tribal groups as PVTGs
  • In 1993, 23 groups were added to the list.
  • Hence, there are 75 PVTGs out of 705 Scheduled Tribes
  • Odisha has the highest number of PVTGs. In 2020, the Odisha government further identified 888 villages/hamlets inhabited by PVTGs
  • The PVTGs are spread over 18 states and one Union Territory (UT), in the country (2011 census).
  • Characteristics of PVTGs:
    • Population – stangnant/declining
    • Technology – pre-agricultural
    • Literacy Level – extremely low
    • Economy – Subsistence level
