This study explores youth relocation from Kamrup (M), Assam, to metropolitan areas across India, highlighting significant socio-economic implications for both migrants and their places of origin. Employing a mixed-methods approach, the research uses surveys, interviews, and secondary data analysis to understand the motivations, patterns, and consequences of this migration trend. The primary data focuses on the demographic profile of migrating youth, including age, education level, employment status, and familial background. Qualitative interviews provide deeper insights into their motivations and aspirations. Preliminary findings suggest that economic opportunities, such as better-paying jobs, career advancement, and access to diverse industries, are primary motivators. Educational pursuits, social networks, and aspirations for a modern lifestyle also contribute to the decision to relocate. However, the migration process presents challenges like cultural adjustment, language barriers, and social integration issues. The ‘brain drain’ phenomenon raises concerns about the loss of skilled workforce from the region, impacting local development.
