Abstract:

This paper addresses the trends as well as migration differentials according to different demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of migrants from rural areas of district Satna in Madhya Pradesh, India. To date, limited research work is done in Madhya Pradesh on the pattern of rural-out migration. For the present study data has been collected on 2150 households using the personal interview method with the help of pre-designed questionnaire. The findings from analyzing the primary data reveals that ‘poverty’, ‘liking of place’ and ‘better opportunities’ are main push-pull factors behind rural-out migration. Migrants in young age group 15-34 years are more prone to migrate, also age at migration and place of destination are closely related to each other. Migration pattern of educated persons in general has undergone a change and there are reasons to believe that, like some job related policies of state government and expansion of many industries in Satna (urban) and other districts of M.P. has attracted a noticeable portion of educated youth. The study further indicates that, a large portion of migrants sent back remittances, which plays a very important role in socio-economic upliftment of other members of household.
