The physiography of Rajasthan is not suitable for agricultural activity. Most parts of Rajasthan are sandy regions and Aravalli Mountain, which is a barrier for agriculture. Eastern part of Rajasthan is covered with plain soil but this region is also not suitable for agriculture. This is the reason why Rajasthan experienced a large proportion of out-migration from its different physiographic regions. The present research aims to investigate in details, the identification of out migration regions and regional flow of male migration with a geographical perspective. Analysis of inter-regional out-migration flow in Rajasthan was based on secondary data. The migration rates has been calculated for out-migration, in-migration, and net migration, as well as specific population subgroups using Clark method. The Eastern sandy arid region and Eastern plain region have experienced higher rate of inter-regional out-migration.
Key words: Male migration, source region, Rajasthan, physiographic region.
