Contrary to the 2011 forecast that migration of Kerala youth to abroad, especially to Gulf countries, for work will decline in the next three years, a new survey by the Centre for Development Studies has shown that there has been an increase in the number of emigrants from the state.
The study, which was released last week, blame it on the state’s inability to provide jobs to them.
The study was conducted by Prof K C Zachariah and S Irudaya Rajan of the Research Unit on International Migration at the Centre for Development Studies (CDS), Thiruvananthapuram. The report was released on Wednesday. This was the sixth in the series of a migration study conducted by the CDS for Kerala Planning Board.
