Ramesh Jadi, Srinivas Durgam
In India, migration from rural areas is an important issue that is gaining more significance year after year. Moreover, the extent, nature characteristics and pattern of migration have been evolving over time In fact, the growing part of the migration taking place is seasonal and cyclical in nature. Seasonal or short duration migration is certainly a new phenomenon in India. However, the magnitude of rural labour circulation is of recent origin, and a direct consequence of structural changes in the economy. Seasonal or circular migration could be largely distress driven and stimulated by the partial or complete collapse of rural employment generation, others move ahead and people migrate to access these emerging opportunities. Industrialization widens the gap between rural and urban areas, inducing a shift of the workforce towards industrializing areas. It also aims on to evaluate the form of migration, and finally analyses the migrants’ wages, work conditions and the expenditure pattern of earnings from migration. The study analysis is based on a primary level survey conducted in Nalagonda and Mahabubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, India. The study reveals that migration from the village is essentially seasonal and cyclical in nature, and differs for both rural and Urban migrants. Indeed, it is taking place mainly for survival and repayment of debts.
