On analysis of collected data, it has been revealed that 99.14% Tribal Leprosy patients completed their treatment in prescribed time in comparison to their 100% non tribal counterparts. On Further analysis it has been observed that all tribal and non tribal PB Leprosy patients completed their treatment while only 98.70% MB tribal patients completed their MDT in stipulated time in comparison to 100% MB non tribals. As far as sex wise concerned tribal males are lagging behind in comparison to their female counterparts while in case of non tribals patients of both sexes completed their treatment in time. Regarding inhabitants - 100% tribal and non tribal in urban completed the treatment while in rural 99. 7% and 100% tribal and non tribal respectively completed their treatment within time limit. This indicates that National Rural Health Mission fails to penetrate the difficult to reach areas, i.e., Tribals and strengthen the view that "National Tribal Health Mission" be formulated and implemented as early as possible.
