In this report, the Delhi-based Institute for Human Development (IHD) has found declining pattern of in-migration to Delhi. According to the report, 16 per cent of Delhi residents moved to the city within the past 20 years. With 4.6 per cent of respondents saying they moved to Delhi between six and 10 years ago, and 4.1 per cent saying they moved less than five years ago, the report concludes that the rate of migration appeared to be slowing slightly. The report cites several reasons for this slow decline, with 'education and training' emerging as the main factor for new migrants as compared to employment related reasons earlier.
