The movements of people refer to the concept of migration and urbanization. Basically these are the demographic concepts. In general, migration is a necessary element of population redistribution and equilibrium in any society. Today people move where not only economic but social opportunities are also better. Simply migration means the change of place from one area to other, or the area of origin to area of destination. Traditionally it can be divided into two parts: internal migration (people’s movement within the country or region, e.g. rural to urban etc.) and external migration (international, people’s movement outside the State). The present study reviews the overall concepts of internal migration, from rural to urban, which is the dominant expression of internal migration.
