The main occupation of the tribals in the State is agriculture. Despite this, the irrigation facilities existing in tribal areas continue to be inadequate. Moreover, the command area of the irrigation projects usually lie in the plain lands, whereas the tribals mainly reside in the hilly areas. Therefore, the major benefits of these projects predominantly go to non-tribal land holders The increase in agricultural production is inextricably linked with increase in irrigation facilities in the State. The flow of benefits from the major and medium irrigation projects to the tribals are limited, it is necessary to give the priority to minor irrigation works in the Tribal Sub-Plan areas.
