    Abstract

    Allele distribution studies was carried out in "Bharias" from the central part of the Indian subcontinent. "Bharias" are one of the classified primitive Indians. They are located in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh, at "Patal Kot" that is situated amidst dense forests surrounded by high hills of "Satpura ranges" lies between 22°-24' and 22°-29' north latitude and 78°-43' and 78°-50' east longitude. "Patalkot" is a bowl-shaped formation on the Satpura hills surrounded on three sides by hill ridges like a straight wall thus making "Patalkot" almost inaccessible. The estimated total area of Patalkot is about 79 sq. kms. The highest contours of the area are 3750 ft above sea level. The total population of "Bharias" comprises 2012 members belonging to 238 families, inhabited in 12 small villages, distributed in 23 hamlets (1,2). The different villages within "Patalkot" located at different altitudes ranged from 1950 to 3050 ft
