Abstract:
Labour migration is an imperative source of livelihood for rural people of India. Every year a large number of rural communities' people migrate towards urban areas in search of livelihood to sustain their life. At their destinations migrant people face too many troubles and become vulnerable. Vulnerability affects their earnings, health and other individual outcomes. This study is an attempt to analyse the perceptions of vulnerabilities within different communities' people residing in southern Rajasthan of Dungarpur District of India. The study has been completed on primary level interview based scheduled data of 600 seasonal migrants of 5 major social community groups of 8 villages of Dungarpur district. Contemplating on five major problems of migrants at their destinations in mind, seven-point likert scale measure is used to analyse the perceptions of migrants' vulnerabilities. After intermingling various perceptions of different people of different communities, it has been recognized that most of the communities' people confronted mental and physical harassment with job insecurity than other problems at their destinations. A range of people became so vulnerable, powerless and weak at destinations that influenced their social and economic outcomes. Study also makes an effort to suggest some policy issues addressing to local administration and government to reduce the vulnerabilities of migrants so that; they would be able to work fearlessly and receive favorable outcomes at destinations and become smart labourers.
