Abstract: Labour migration in general and rural to urban migration in particular has drawn considerable attention after the initiation of economic reforms. Much emphasis has been given to outward oriented growth, leaving the agricultural sector (Coolies) development virtually ignored as a result of which rural, formal and non-formal sectors failed to generate adequate number of jobs leading to unemployment in such areas. Hence, the push and pull factors lead to migration of labour from one state to another state which has abundant employment opportunity. Migration is a movement from one place to another either permanently or as a temporary option. When a person moves from his native place in search of employment opportunity and starts living in the new place, the person is referred as migrant and the movement is known as migration. It occurs as a response of people to environmental changes associated with social, economic, political and demographic factors.
