Abstract
Agriculture is the significant and most important part of Indian economy. Agriculture is the main source of livelihood in rural India even though; industrial and service sectors have over taken it in the contributions to the overall GDP. The main features of the tribal economies include their agro-forest base, weekly shandies and exploitation by the outsides, low levels of income, dependency on the non-institutional sources for credit, low levels of education and literacy. These features have their impact on the occupations and living conditions of the tribal women. 60-70 per cent of the tribal women depend on farm related activities mostly. Women in the plain areas, on the road side villages work in non-farm activities. Women are assets to the tribal households as they play an important role in the socio- cultural, living and religious ways of tribal societies. They work hard, manage the family economy, take care of children, attend to domestic chores, work as labourers in the own farms, bring income by taking up wage employment and mostly collect MFP by going into the forests. A decent life and dignified living always elude them despite their work culture.
