It is in this spirit that the Second Administrative Reforms commission (ARc) in its Report on capacity building for conflict Resolution has tried to examine the background and emerging facets of the many conflicts that plague India. These have been detailed in separate chapters ranging from left extremism to land and water related conflicts, to conflicts based on religion, regional disparities and social divisions (with particular focus on the Scs, STs and the Obcs) as well as conflicts based upon political identity and ethnicity such as the militancy in the North East. The Report thereafter looks at the extant operational and institutional arrangements for onflict management and how the capacity of these mechanisms can be strengthened so as to better manage and resolve conflicts in the country. It is our hope and prayer that the suggestions in this Report can contribute in some small measure towards our common goal of nation building.

In Chapter 4. Land related issues  it describes that the demand for land for non-agricultural use including development projects and the growing impulse to urbanise, create further scope for conflicts. These and similar aspects are discussed in this chapter. Issues like tribal land alienation and tenurial reforms are, however, dealt with in this Report.

The Indus Valley civilization, one of the world's oldest, flourished during the 3rd and 2nd millennia B.C. and extended into northwestern India. Aryan tribes from the northwest infiltrated the Indian subcontinent about 1500 B.C.; their merger with the earlier Dravidian inhabitants created the classical Indian culture. The Maurya Empire of the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C. - which reached its zenith under ASHOKA - united much of South Asia. The Golden Age ushered in by the Gupta dynasty (4th to 6th centuries A.D.) saw a flowering of Indian science, art, and culture.
