Internal labour migration has emerged as a new-age development challenge for India. High economic disparity between regions, agrarian distress compounded by adverse climatic changes has pushed more and more rural poor to Indian cities. As per Economic Survey 2016-17 there are 139 million labour migrants in India who move between the rural and urban, struggling with disenfranchisement within the boundaries of their own country and an uncertain livelihood option which is their only exit from poverty.
