The COVID 19 Pandemic has hit across all the corners of the country. COVID 19 had destroyed economies, homes; availability of food and has created the mass exodus of migrant workers due to the Shutdown of the market. The Reverse Migration will perhaps create the greatest crisis in Metro Cities due to an acute shortage of manpower and it will create a sudden demand for employment in our rural India and our Rural India is not yet prepared for such a huge and sudden migration that taking place from the cities. But Reverse migration has also brought a hope for developing states like UP, Bihar, Bengal, Rajasthan, and many more. There are more opportunities in rural economy rather than just agro and farming activities. This paper aims at reviewing the role of Reverse migration in the revival of the economic conditions of underdeveloped and developing states along with the country by providing them with a proper working environment. We need to turn COVID Crisis of reverse migration into opportunity. To support the rural economy, the government should make proper agricultural and industrial policies to stop “footloose” (hired people from rural areas to urban). To overcome these problems Hon'ble PM of India ShriNarendraModiJi has come up with “AatmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan” that promotes local product and economy. The paper also briefs about the challenges coming from Reverse migration as there are many challenges like less Social resources, technological resources, and infrastructure, etc. The Paper concludes on how Reverse migration can contribute to the growth of the developing states along with the country and minimizing the rate of unemployment and make India self-dependent (AatmaNirbhar)
