Migration of workers is a human phenomenon which has historical roots and wider implications. In economic parlance, migration is perceived as when a person is engaged or likely to engage in a remunerative activity in a place of which he is not a native or national. Migration in India has been in existence historically, but, in the context of globalization and opening up of the world economy it has assumed special significance, for the country and the society.As a consequence of interspersing of historical and economic factors, there are serious income disparities, agrarian distress, inadequate employment generation, vast growth of informal economy and the resultant migration from rural to urban, urban to urban and backward to comparatively advanced regions in the most appalling conditions.
