In 21st century the revolution brought by Information and Communication Technology has led to information booming around the world. Consequently, the ways and manners of information seeking by users have changed. Users of information are now faced with highly decentralized, heterogeneous sources of information. Now the question is how far the revolution of information is being influenced to all the citizens of India. By nature, India is a country of having wider variety in caste, language, culture, education, employment, financial solvency, etc. If we have a look in to practical scenario of the people living in BPL class in general and Tribal’s in particular then, the inference will not be a matter of line. Therefore, it is imperative to do detail investigation on the Tribal people to ensure actual rural, social and national development. The present study investigated information needs and seeking behaviour of the tribal of the four villages Balipara, Baganpara, Kaliganja and Pearsonpalli, the surrounding areas of Santiniketan. This study is a replica of the state-of-the-art report of the Santal community who are under transition in all respect.
