Answer in Brief
State the aims of migration policies.
Policies to address the problem of migration in developing countries like India essentially aim at the following:
- To reduce the volume of migration:
As a large part of migration is a reflection of poverty and insecurity faced by large sections of the rural people, the focus of intervention has to be in rural areas. Rural development policies to reduce poverty and insecurity would be essential to reduce the rate of migration.
- To redirect the migrant streams:
Redirection of migrant streams, away from big metropolitan cities is a desirable policy option. This policy can help in reducing spatial inequalities by suitable strategies, such as developing a more dispersed pattern of urbanization.
