Some segments of society have remained illiterate and backward for many centuries. It was because of the fact that Indian society was divided into "Varnas" and few people of the high caste enjoyed all the privileges and facilities at the expense of society's underprivileged people. That is why our constitutional frameworks have seriously considered giving that section of society reservations so that they can also reach the optimum level in society. Much still has to be done, however, in this direction. But during the process of balancing the various sections of society, the government must be very careful not to hurt and disturb other sections of society. According to the recent judgement of the Supreme Court, those who have already benefited from reservations should not be granted benefits over and over again. Only those individuals, regardless of caste, creed and colour, who are economically poor and depressed, should be helped. This paper presents a conceptual structure focused on the seamless integration of culture and diversity throughout the different stages of tribal population education.
