The survey on returnee professionals was carried out by the Research Unit on International
Migration at Centre for Development Studies (CDS), Thiruvananthapuram for the Ministry of
Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA), Govt. of India. The study explored the reasons for the return and their post-return settlement. We interviewed 1106 highly skilled professionals (both in educational as well as occupational terms) who had returned spontaneously and voluntarily to reside in India during the period 2006-2011. We took samples from Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala), Cochin (Kerala), Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Mumbai (Maharashtra), Ahmadabad (Gujarat), Pune (Maharashtra), Delhi and Bangalore (Karnataka). We followed Snowball Sampling to find out about the return and their resettlement issues faced by the returnee migrants.
