In India, the backwardness of agriculture, regional imbalance, lack of availability of employment opportunities that fetches decent wages in rural areas forces the unemployed youths to migrate to urban areas and other metropolitan cities in search of jobs. The construction sector is one such sector which provides ample opportunities for both skilled and unskilled workers. Moreover construction sector mainly depend on these migrant workers. These migrant workers seeking jobs in construction sector earn better wages than in their native. The migration towards construction sector improves the economic position of these workers. Construction sector has been growing at a faster rate in India. As the level of growth increases it is also attracting a greater number of workers towards it. On one side there is construction sector and on the other side there are workers depending on this sector. The rise in infrastructural facilities, increase in budgetary provisions by the government, hike in private investments has given a boost to this sector and so is attracting more number of workers towards the sector. Now it is a time to look into the construction sector and its potentiality and conditions of the workers in the industry. There is a need to assess the economic conditions of the construction workers. The present study has made an effort to compare the economic status of these workers before and after migration.
