Dr. D.P. Singh is Professor and Chairperson of the Centre for Research Methodology at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.

He will talk about internal migration in India, which has been increasing gradually since 1983 in both rural and urban areas, and across different social groups. The data shows that female migration has increased, while male migration has declined. The migration of poor people remains at a low level, while the migration of those in middle and high expenditure groups has increased.

Dr Singh will also talk about household migration, return migration, out-migration and the impact of remittances on economic well being of migrant households.
