MIGRATION ATLAS OF INDIA
According to the Census of India (2011), the number of migrant workers in India is around 139 million. Among this estimate, maximum migrants are from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal which includes both inter-state and intra-state migration.
In reality, these large sums of migrant workers are 'Nowhere People'. The laws, policies, schemes, and institutions been made to protect their 'Rights and Dignity' have locked down much before the political reality of Today.
Ekta Parishad's primary focus is to raise the voices for these 'Unheard'.
