Make Independent TSP area District in Thane, as per PESA & 5th Schedule of Constitution


Maharashtra State Government had announced bifurcation of Thane District (Largest District in Country & Largest Tribal Population District of Maharashtra). We request Consider PESA and 5th schedule of Constitution of India while proceeding for Bifurcation. In interest of protecting tribal communities and real tribal development by ensuring to preserve Nature and natural resources. Independent District of TSP area will definitely Add value for tribal empowerment, instead of just for political benefits of few politicians. 

Due to Rapid urbanization Tribals communities are facing big challenges of

  1. Tribal Land & resources : Has been grabbed illegal
  2. Educational Quality : Poor Infrastructure & Low competitiveness, Lack of identification of Tribal culture, history, Rituals & traditional knowledge
  3. Employment & Career Opportunities : Local Tribals are not getting opportunities in employments & business establishments
  4. Leadership, representation : Lack of political/Administrative/Social Leadership of Local Tribal Communities
  5. Low Infrastructural Development : Poor Infrastructure, Almost projects are based on grabbing Natural resources
  6. Risk of Destroying Nature : Natural Resources, Land, Water, Jungle has been destroyed continuously in the name of Development
  7. Cultural Identity : Risk of loosing cultural identity, Cultural values
  8. Traditional Knowledge of Tribal Communities : Language, Medicine, Plants, Technology, Art, Handicraft, Dance, Tradition
