Abstract

Inter and intra-state migrations are linked to economic efforts. Because some states do not have enough jobs to generate, individuals migrate to earn a living. However, the issue emerged as a result of a pandemic. COVID-19 caused panic and turned into a tragedy in Indian history. The emergence of the covid 19 caused alarm among migrant workers and a psychological need for them to be with their family. They had to ponder whether they would be able to earn enough to eat because of the unexpected shutdown. Migrants without a job or money have no choice but to return to their homeland in order to survive in the host city. This resulted in a rush of migrants leaving their workplaces to return home across India. This was a problem for which India was unprepared. The state administration faces a difficulty in containing the pandemic COVID-19 and reviving the economy as soon as possible due to the epidemic's rising tendency and its extended duration.
