Abstract: Migration has increasingly become a worldwide phenomenon supporting the livelihoods of a large number of people. But it can also be a potential source of conflict which is evident in India in general and its northeast region in particular. As a result the country’s federal government has undertaken different measures for controlling illegal cross-border immigration into the country. But not so useful because the measures were undertaken largely due to the political compulsion, without taking into account the historical ties between the sending and the receiving countries. This failure has of course further led to the alienation of many people, and yet the opinion on migration has become polarised.
