India is getting some new migrants that no one seems to realize.  Its the Ugandans.  The number of Ugandans moving to India has risen sharply in the last 10 years.  In fact, from just 694 in 2001 census to 151,363 in 2011.

In the 1970s, many Indian origin Ugandans had moved to India due to Idi Amin.

As per the numbers, most of the return immigrants or immigrants from Uganda has been in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, not Gujarat or Punjab.

What is interesting is that 77,000 of these immigrant/return immigrants have reported that they have been in India for 10 years.  Which means that 2001 census was flawed!

In 1972, Idi Amin had made 80,000 Indians in Uganda leave that country.  They have since moved from one country to another.  But this phenomenon is new.
