India continues to experience inter-State migration as a result of complex socioeconomic factors. The freedom of movement for citizens inside this enormous nation state, India, facilitates extensive interstate labor migration. However, this internal mobility of labor inside India offers tremendous opportunity for learning important new information and is yet mostly understudied. This article especially investigates the motivations of these migrants and the role of social networks in the creation of such migration streams, with a focus on migrant construction workers from West Bengal traveling to Kerala. According to a field study in Kerala, the state's proximity to the Gulf and rapid demographic change have significantly reduced the local labor pool, which has increased immigration from other Indian states due to improved job prospects, higher incomes, and efficient payment methods.
