This ancient city has been populated by ancient tribal people called "Adivasi", which means ancient forest dwellers. They are a protected tribe named as Korwas (Pahadi Korwa). They have always lived in harmony with nature, and never misused its resources. They have retained their cultural and traditional integrity since the earliest times. Today, Korba has become the Power Capital in India, as this city always had great resources like Coal mines and the largest reservoir to produce mass amounts of electricity. This city has a great potential due to its power generating capabilities for Chinese interpreters, to have a consistent work efficiency.
