Watch: Rates of internal migration in India on the decline

Migration of persons within national borders is far greater in magnitude than migration across international borders. Evidence indicates a continuous shift of population within a country as a response to a variety of social, economic and demographic factors. The processes of industrialisation and urbanisation have provoked significant shift of people from rural to urban areas.

Recent figures point out that most of the migrants within India are increasingly females. Female population in the country is almost three times more mobile than male population. However, much of this mobility among females is basically marriage induced.

Lesser Indians are now relocating for work and employment. Since 2001, the rate of mobility has steadily declined in India for both rural as well as urban areas.
