Dr. K.S. Meenakshisundaram ., Dr. N. Panchanatham .


Migration is the movement of an individual or group of people from one place to another and this is also true in the case of agricultural labourers who migrate to urban areas for better wages and to have a better standard of living. Due to this farmers are not in a position to cultivate and get maximum returns even though advanced scientific cropping technologies are now available. Hence, a research study was conducted in Kancheepuram & Wallajah blocks of Kancheepuram district in Tamilnadu to analyse the migration social network for migration of agricultural labourers with selected demographic variables and suitable suggestions to minimise Rural Urban Migration were suggested
