Temporary and seasonal mobility of migration is higher among scheduled tribes and scheduled caste than other caste groups in rural areas in India and also similar to rural areas in West Bengal. After the detailed study it is cleared that scheduled tribe out-migration from West Bengal occurred from agriculturally and economically depressed area. In West Bengal highest proportion of scheduled tribe out-migration found in Bankura, Puruliya, Nadia, Murshidabad, Howrah, Hooghly, Koch Bihar and South 24thParganas districts. But in term of scheduled tribe male out-migration greater proportion found from agriculturally backward districts like Puruliya, Bankura, South 24thParganas etc. districts.
