In Andhra Pradesh, Andhs are living in the hilly tracts of Adilabad district.

The Andh is divided into two endogamous groups viz., Vartali and Khaltali. The people belonging to Vartali section are considered superior to Khaltali section and as such they do not inter-marry. Andh tribe is further divided into a number of exogamous septs or surnames (Intiperlu) known as Adman. Each Adman is an exogamous unit. The marriage by negotiations is common among Andhs but marriage by intrusion is also prevalent. Widow remarriages are permitted among Andhs. But the Widow is not permitted to marry her deceased husbands brother or any member of his sept. Divorce is permissible. They speak Marati as their mother tongue. Andhs do not consume beef.

They mainly subsist on agriculture followed by agricultural labour. They partly subsist on collection of forest produce, hunting and fishing.
