About India Migration Now  

India Migration Now is an initiative of the Southeast Migration Foundation, a nonprofit company based out of Mumbai since 2018. Our work has been at the forefront of migration research and policy making in India. Our mission is to mainstream migration (into, within and from India) across the board in India. We help governments, capital markets, industry and civil society help service migrant households better. Along with research and advocacy (under the banner “India Migration Now”), we are building an open data ecosystem for tracking and measuring migration better. Chalo Network is our award-winning financial inclusion engine which delivers financial and social welfare services to migrant communities across India. We want to change the perspective that sees migration as something to limit and control into something which must be harnessed and cultivated equitably. Our team is 90% remote.
