This study focused especially on the number of Satar/Santhal peoples (an ethnic composition of population) living in Surunga VDC and Nepal. Owing to such, data were collected through secondary sources (VDC Records and National Census Reports), data analysis has been done by incorporating simple methods like numerical figures, tables and bar diagrams. Findings suggest that Satar/ Santhal population of Surunga VDC is shifting from highly marginalized to endangered group by the view point of size of the Satar/Santhal community people. There is negative relationship quantitatively between the number of Satar/Santhal population of Surunga VDC and Nepal. It shows the vast decreasing trend in the Surunga VDC and slight increasing trend in Nepal in Satar/Santhal community. This situation is not the good sign of social, ethnic and demographic inclusiveness.
