            In the later part of the 20th century modernization is the most important factor for the migration of the people from different rural and tribal areas to urban areas in search of works. Majority of these migrants were very poor and have settled mostly in the periphery areas of the towns forming slums. Most of them were not conscious about their environment before migration. The present article speaks about the Environmental Awareness of the Scheduled Tribe Slum Inhabitants of Bhubaneswar Municipality Corporation Area. The findings of the study reported that a very high percentage of scheduled tribe slum inhabitants of both the sexes and total sampled inhabitants were very much conscious of their environment.
