In an overarching concern to protect its territorial integrity and social harmony, illegal cross-border migration is regarded as a vital issue for India’s national security. The inter-state relations are marked by a kind of turbulence on account of several illegal transnational activities and ethno-cultural conflicts. These could be attributed to a great extent to Bangladeshi migration to India.
