Concluding Remarks and Policy Recommendations
In a progressive, accommodative and dynamic democracy, no one can be deprived or only a few sections cannot enjoy the benefits over others, which would be against the spirit of the Constitution of India. Equal opportunities should be provided to all the citizens, more so to the deprived sections like the De-Notified Tribes. Then only the stigma and discrimination attached to them would gradually disappear and society can progress more inclusively. It is time to end all such social, economic and cultural prejudices and ill-practices with regard to the De-Notified Tribes, in particular, and other subaltern communities in general.
