The current initiatives of development and the subsequent commercialisation affect biodiversity and environmental values of forest and eventually disappears valuable forest ecosystem. The market pressure linked with cultural aspects of tribal people and ultimately the strength of the ecosystem. The present study is based on the Malayali Tribe of the Jawadhu Hills of the Eastern Ghats located at the Tamil Nadu state of South India. "The aim of the paper is to improve our understanding on the issues relevant to the commercialisation influencing the tribal culture and the forest eco- system of the Jawadhu Hills. In order to achieve this objective the paper has the following research questions: 1. What are the interactions between commercialisation and community and household welfare? 2. What are the interactions between commercialisation and forest ecosystems?"
