The question of Tribal woman’s identity and inequality in India is a crucial point of discussion. As India being  a developing, emotional and multicultural country,  The major concern of attention at present in studies relating tribal is not simply pertaining to problems and disputes among this community but also involving them with non tribal society and protecting their identity. Protective policies and constitutional provisions are available as a support system but the concern and challenges are required to revisit.

Demand to set right the historical wrongs; Social justice has become the significant movement in India. This movement has accelerated in the past few decades due to the migration and immigration of the tribal communities. 

Worries of judicial system are hidden and still we are not able to explore its problems , which leads to depression in the sector of migrant tribal. Issues relating to optimum balance to control crime and exploitation against them are still pertinent. 

It has forced us to rethink upon the delivery of social justice through law and statues. Present Paper strives to highlight the aspects of the constitution which has assisted judiciary, to achieve the unachievable of the past. The judiciary has enthusiastically supported the improvement of the tribal immigrant woman in India through law and regulations and it has reached a substantial level to alleviate the situation yet long way to go. The paper would analyse various case laws, case studies and focuses on the guiding principles of social justice for the tribal labourers. Constitution being the most powerful document of democratic India lays down various principles for achieving social justice. As Mr. Justice V.R Krishna Iyer has aptly said “Dogs may bark but the caravan of justice passes by”.
