Migration is a process whereby people leave their place of origin and settle down either within the national boundaries or to an alien land. Around 3% of the world’s popula-tions are international migrants. The present study focuses on the rather low profile migrants “the Karen Community” into Andaman Islands and traces their contribution towards the economic development of the Islands. The study concludes that in-migration has contributed to the overall progress of the islands and they can be called as the earliest settlers to this part of Andaman.
