Tribal people constitute the weakest section of the society. Among this weakest section, there exist inter-community variations.
Some communities are better off than others in all aspects of development. The paper focuses on examining the inter community
variations among three tribal communities of Wayanad district (Paniyan, Kurichian and Kuruman) and in what aspects some are
better off than others. Among the three communities, Kurumans are comparatively better off in terms of income, standard of living, and political participation and health conditions. The extent of variation among tribal groups was identified using the MultiDimensional Poverty Index.

Development, exclusion, inclusive growth, inter-tribe variation, marginalised, tribal communities.
