Dynamics of Rural-Urban Migration in India

Surendra Nath Misra (Author)
Synopsis Dynamics of Rural-Urban Migration in India discusses about the socio-economic factors responsible for the migration of labourers from rural areas to urban centres, studies the nature, size, type and other characteristics of rural migrant workers, analyses as to what extent migration has contributed towards the improvement of economic conditions of migrant workers and their families, examines the effects of migration on the general improvement of the economic conditions of the areas, supporting migration, deals with the difficulties and problems faced by the migrant workers during migration and finally reviews the various legal and legislative enactments enacted by Central and State Governments to safeguard the interests of the migrant workers and the scope of their rehabilitation. The entire study is based on a combination of Macro and Micro data with specific emphasis on the latter. Migration is found to have contributed largely in improving the economic condition of the migrants and their families. The study also identifies for the first time various provisions of labour legislations enacted by Central and State Governments and their limitations to handle migration of workers moving with agents/ contractors and working in hazardous occupations and offers possible solutions how to overcome these? The book will be of immense help to academic scholars, researchers, policy makers, statesmen, labour officers, Project Directors and the general public having avowed interest on the subject.
