From the time Immemorial, human beings have been getting displaced from their native places for one reason or the other. Sometime the dislocation was on account of the demands of development and on other it was because of war, natural calamities, religious and political persecutions. All this and a host of other factors have been continually creating a class of displaced persons who are uprooted from the places of their origins. Normally this class of displaced and uprooted persons are what we call as refugees. The influx of hordes of refugees into any country especially the third world country created several problems in the social, cultural, political and economic spheres. The 20th century is the living testimony of the marked increase in the issues related to the refugees.
