Abstract: Globalisation has significantly influenced the international migration of people. It is estimated
that there were 258 million international migrants in 2017. The largest number of international
migrants resides in the USA followed by followed by Saudi Arabia, Germany, Russian
federation and United Kingdom. India tops the list of with 16.59 million people living outside
the country followed by Mexico. Indians have diversified global presence with gulf countries
residing more than half of total international migrants from India. International migration
involves not only movement of people across borders, but also flows of resources like capital,
knowledge, skill etc. International migrants send remittances to their families and communities
of origin. Remittances are an important source of family and national income and also are the
largest source of external financing. The world bank estimated that officially recorded
remittances to the developing world reached $466 billion in 2017 while global remittances
including those to high income countries reached $613 billion (World Bank Report, 2017). The
top five remittance recipient countries are India, China, Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria and Egypt.
The remittance growth to India maintained its global leadership in 2017 with $69 billion inward
remittances (World Bank Report, 2017). The present paper is an attempt to throw light, with the
help of existing secondary data, on trends of remittance inflows in India and its role in the
development of nation.
