Emigration in 21st-Century India

Emigration in 21st-Century India: Governance, Legislation, Institutions by S. Krishna Kumar And S. Irudaya Rajan from Routledge India.

Emigration in 21st-Century India is the first definitive exposition of contemporary Indian labour migration. The book provides a comprehensive appraisal of the policies, legislation and institutional architecture governing emigration at both federal and state levels. It posits that, geographically, emigration is now a more inclusive, pan-India phenomenon with many distinct features.


It draws critical attention to the multiple dualities in Indian emigration, showing how the artificial distinction between a universal pravasi (‘expatriate’ or ‘migrant’) and a restricted aam pravasi (‘common emigrant’) distorts emigration governance. On the basis of extensive data from the Kerala Migration Survey (KMS) and National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) Rounds, it projects the emerging profile of the emigrant from new source states as also the likely number of migrants by 2021, drawing cross-country comparisons where appropriate. The work will be invaluable to scholars of migration and diaspora studies, economics, development studies and sociology, as well as policy makers, administrators, academics, and non-governmental organisations in the field.
