An attempt has been made in this paper to evaluate the psychological well-being of the dwellers of rehabilitation camps in Cooch Behar district, West Bengal, India, who have been sheltered after exchange of enclaves between India and Bangladesh and subsequent migration. Since people commonly migrate for their need, primarily for economic reason, their movement is basically oriented to economic well-being. But, in many cases, well-being may not be achieved through economic satisfaction rather migrants sometimes feel their lost world i.e. the place of living and its surroundings, which brings a psychological well being to them both positively and negatively. Results shows that rehabilitated people, although migrated as per their wish, have achieved economic satisfaction but psychologically a number of them are not happy and often remind their old memories.
