We will be covering all the backward district of India in many phases one by one. In Phase One we “DHFR” pledge to remove Illiteracy and life struggle of Tribes peoples, Tea Garden area of Alipurduar and Jalpaiguri District.

Alipurduar district have five rural blocks of fifty-five gram panchayat, Jalpaiguri district have fourteen rural gram panchayat , Darjeeling district have three rural blocks and near about fifty gram panchayat, is situated in North-East India.
It is a well known fact that the Tea garden is most backward region and peoples are below poverty level. Hunger deaths are reported massively. They are economically backward.
Peoples of these regions are facing so many problems which are given below:-
Solution: - Set up modern school in these areas to overcome next generation life struggle and also for Adult education in evening to reach their goals.
Problem: - Traditional education pattern generate unemployment to next generation
Solution: - Start Vocational training institute with modern curriculum to get income opportunity for all.
Problem: - Financial and communication gap
Solution: - To organize and setup self help group to enrich by food processing, vegetable processing units. We promote and market the entire organic products on behalf of self help group. Provide all modern facilities and training in our school.
Problem: - Health care facilities
Solution: - Most of the Tea garden has no medical facilities right now and also some Tea gardens are locked out. So we start Mobile Dispensary at those areas.
Problem: - Lack of awareness and legal services
Solution: - We build an information and legal hub to provide information about government schemes, registration, and setup a good communication between local bodies and poor peoples. Organize awareness program to inform people about various social rights.

So let’s start to remove Illiteracy, Human deaths, Unemployment, Hunger, Poverty and build a “Dream’s Heaven”. Your small contribution will overcome several people’s life struggle. Please step forward and join hands together for getting success over “LIFE TRAGEDY”.
1. West Bengal is the second largest producer of tea in India contributing one fourth of India’s tea productions. It has about 450 tea gardens, which employ about 6 lakh workers and it's estimated that more than 2.5 million people are dependent on the tea industry. The socioeconomic condition of tea worker and their dependent is very pathetic; they lag behind the non tea worker on all socioeconomic indicators who are residing in the same district. Though the tea garden workers are permanent worker, but they are daily rated, they get the wages for the actual day that they work. Beside the wages of tea worker is Rs 122.50 which is below the minimum wages of agricultural labour, i.e. Rs 206. As the wages are very low the workers cannot afford even the basic needs of their life which result they are being caught in the vicious circle of poverty, illiteracy hunger, etc. The condition of tea workers become more vulnerable when tea garden is locked out or the work is temporarily suspended. As the worker doesn’t have agricultural land and other source of earning. With the closure of tea garden, they are unable to feed themselves and many people die due to starvation. This paper deals with the socioeconomic aspect of the tea gardens of Alipurduar district.
2. The tribal population is identified as the aboriginal inhabitants of our country. According to 2011 census, there are 705 tribes as STs and among them 75 tribes are recorded as primitive tribal group. In India Bhil (37.7%) is the largest tribe according to 2011 census. Chhattisgarh is known as the tribal heart of India. There are 38 tribes in West Bengal, together comprise about 2% of entire population. Santal (51.8%, largest), Oraon, Munda, Bhumij, Bhutia, Sherpa,Toto, Rabha, Lodha etc. are some of them. Alipurduar district is the hometown of various ethnic tribes like Rajbanshi, Metch, Madasia, Santhal, Bodo, and Toto which makes the place more labyrinths. Toto is one of the unique tribe of the world live in Toto para of Madarihat block in Alipurduar district of West Bengal. The present article is going to present a clear scenario of present socio-economic condition with impact of modernism on their daily life and focus on recommendation leading to various problems of Toto tribe of Madarihat block of Alipurduar district in the state of West Bengal.
3. BAROBISHA: Most of the people are farmers and the next generations rely on business like timber, fishing, vegetable, and retail clothing. Assam-Bengal Commercial/Sales Tax office used to provide a large number of jobs. But post GST regime, Jorai and its neighbor Barobisha have witnessed massive unemployment due to the unification in taxes and abolishing of State sales Tax gate, which would otherwise serve many people a source of income. Computer learning centre, state government jobs and agriculture provide other job opportunities.
4. TOTOPARA: A small village on a hillock located 89° 20'E and 26° 50'N in the Alipurduar district of West Bengal. This village is home to the unique Toto tribe that is one of a kind in the world. The village is about 22 km from Madarihat, which is the entry point of the famous Jaldapara National Park.
