Bhasha Research Project

About Bhasha Research:
Bhasha’s special interest has been the Adivasis, whose national population is about 104 million(Census 2011), and the nomadic and denotified communities, whose population is estimated at 60 million. Bhasha is engaged in bringing a greater appreciation of the cultures of these two social sectors and ensuring their entitlement to constitutional guarantees and social security.
