Abstract– In numerous spheres of social, economic and religious life, women in tribal societies play a crucial role. As compared to non-tribal women, tribal ladies are more highly regarded. Indicators including education, health, work, and the ability to make decisions in the home are used to gauge women’s status. They have better status than non-tribal women and co-participate with men in decisions made both inside the home and outside. But from the perspective of materialistic progress, tribal women still lack access to education and an acceptable standard of living. Ranchi district is a tribal dominated area, where in 18 blocks, tribal population lives. Their livelihood is affected as they lack the basic amenities of living. Tribal women play a significant role in uplifting their family’s economic condition. The forest where they live is a major source in their economic upliftment. In the present paper, 30 plants and plant products are described which are used by tribal women to uplift their economic condition. In addition, a comparison of commodities price has been done and elaborated by line graph which help in improving tribal women economic conditions.
Key words: Forest, Tribal women, Economic condition
