While in Jamatia tribe a large majority of the respondents had medium (82.00 percent) level of participation followed by low (16.00 percent) level of participation and high (2.00 percent) level of participation. The mean and S.D were 40.93 and 6.212 respectively. The ‘t’ value was 2.871 which was significant at 0.05 level of probability.
