Abstract Hand clasping and arm folding in a sample of 704 individuals from three groups of Kondh tribe of Orissa are reported. The three groups under study, i.e., Kutia, Dongoria and Kuvi, do not exhibit any remarkable differences. The distribution of “R” type is highest in the present population. Moreover, the present data has been compared with the available data in respect of some populations in India. Statistically, the Kondhs show a closer affinity with that of other populations of India.
