The Durua tribes are leading a life like that of other primitive tribes Koya, Didayi, Bonda and others but unfortunately they have not been included in the Government of India?s list of SC/ST or Primitive Tribal Groups. Their major plight is that they are not getting any government facilities due to their non-inclusion in the list of Scheduled Tribes. They have the major problem of their tribal identity. Despite having a legacy of rich cultural heritages even after the impact of modernity and globalization the Duruas are striving for their tribal hood status. The lack of support from the Government as well as awareness among them their traditional culture is on the verge of extinction. The modern legislation on forest also adversely impacts on their livelihood. They have lost their bamboo craft and forest based income due to forest rules. With the loss of their traditional livelihood their settled life has come under stress and strain and also responsible for gradual decline of their rich cultural heritages. Despite having all the features of tribal society, they have not yet included in the schedule list of government of India.
