Empirical research seeks, in a casual setting, to get accurate information regarding the study aim. It is possible that insightful data regarding the subject of research might be gleaned via formal interactions with the target respondents. Most researchers depend on prior works to identify research variables, however due to differences in economic and geographical contexts, this might lead to inaccuracies. The study is done in the area of Kodaikanal district which has significant presence of primitive tribal group in comparison to other areas of Tamil Nadu. The data will be collected based on the interview method which will help to find the reality in the study area.
