The Chakmas are Tibeto-Burman ethnologically and are thus closely related to tribes in the foothills of the Himalayas. The Chakma Community in Tripura is found normally in the Sub-Divisions of Kailashahar, Amarpur, Sabroom, Udaipur, Belonia and Kanchanpur.

Chakmas speak in 'Changma Vaj' or 'Changma Kodha' - Chakma language.    The Chakma language was introduced at primary level since 2004 through Bengali Script and since 2013 through Chakma script.

Chakma's are a community with their own culture, folklore, literature and traditions. 

The Chakma population according to 2011 Census was 79,813 which is 2.17 % of the total population.

In Tripura there are 86 notified schools where Chakma students are  studying. Under the Directorate of Kokborok & Other Minority Language an Advisory Committee for the Development of Chakma Language was constituted  to carry out Chakma language developmental works.
