Relocation in India

Relocation Indians have been emigrating for centuries, to parts of the world as far-flung as South Africa, Guyana, Britain, the UAE and Fiji. In comparison, the number of immigrants is small. India’s net migration (the number of immigrants minus the number of emigrants) is at -460,000 per year. This represents a low proportion of the country’s vast population. The net migration rate is -0.05 migrants per 1,000 population, putting it in 112th place out of the 222 territories in the world.

In terms of internal migration, India has a high rate of urbanisation, though few people live in cities. An annual average of 2.47% of the population move to India’s urban and suburban areas, adding to the 31.3% of the population who currently live in a city or town. (source: CIA World Factbook).
