The analysis of internal migration in this research has a particular emphasis on North East India's interstate migration. Utilizing data from the 1991, 2001, and 2011 censuses, the study was conducted. The article examines data from three censuses on migration in the North East States, looking at in-migration from other states and out-migration for both genders, and addressing the various motivations for movement. Assam remains the top spot when assessing migration from the North East to destination states, primarily moving to West Bengal, Delhi, and Maharashtra, respectively. While West Bengal, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh are the top source states for the North East states. In the area, "push" factors have been associated more frequently than "pull" factors.
