Mumbai has a long history of migration, which has played a major role in the economic and social transformation of the city. However, migration, especially from other states, has also given rise to the “sons of the soil” political ideology, which accuses migrants of depriving the local population of jobs and other opportunities.
What the data from Census 2011, recently released by the Ministry of Statistics suggests, however, is that the Urban Agglomeration of Mumbai, including Thane, was not, at the time of the enumeration, an attractive destination for migrants from outside Maharashtra.
