The Covid-19 pandemic has created a dystopian scenario. It has generated ‘uncertainties’ because of immediate prevalence of the notions of risk, fear, panic, crisis and social distancing. Tribal livelihood system has been deeply affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. Government has also suggested several constructive suggestions in order restructure tribal livelihood. This Covid-19 pandemic has created a grave situation with regards to tribal livelihood system.
