Kottayam: Kerala is passing through a reverse trend in migration. With decreasing number of Malayalees going to Gulf countries in search of greener pastures, a large influx of manual labourer from different parts of the country, numbering around three million according to unofficial figures, find a new Gulf in Kerala.

The majority of migrant workers falls under the young age group of 18-30. A large chunk of these labourers come from states like West Bengal, Bihar, Odisha and Assam and find job opportunities  in construction, jewellery making, hotel industry and agriculture fields.

Government of Kerala is making an effort to create a databank of these non-Keralite workforce  in the best interest of the state. Govt hopes that this would channelize a vast human resource for the benefits of Kerala and prevent exploitation of poor migrant workers.
