ABSTRACT
The current pandemic of Covid-19 has not only changed the life style of billions of persons in the world but also severely disturbed their livelihood. Travel ban and business restrictions has frozen the movement of people, changed the occupational status and consumption pattern of people in almost every country. India is leading country to supply labour ( around 18 million ) in the world and top remittances receiving country globally from 2008 to 2020-21 and Saudi Arabia is third largest remittances source country in the world. The oil boom of 1970s in the Gulf countries increased the demand for unskilled and semiskilled labour. Majority of the skilled or semi-skilled labour were supplied to the Gulf countries from southern state of India like Kerala or Tamil Nadu and unskilled or semi-skilled labour had been supplied from northern states of India like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The migrants or the refugees in any society agonized the most during any pandemic, hence it is essential to analyze the economic impact of Indian emigrants in Saudi Arabia during the Coronavirus disease. This study is quantitative in nature and based on both primary and secondary data. The sample of 100 unskilled or semi-skilled labour were collected through a structured questionnaire. 60 samples of migrants from Uttar Pradesh and 40 samples of migrants from Bihar were collected through multi-stage sampling technique in the month of March-April 2021. The study has confirmed that remittances and earnings of the migrants had been negatively affected during COVID-19. The loss of earnings and spread of Coronavirus in their native place had a severe mental impact on the migrants. Chi square test result confirms that there is a significant difference of feeling nervous, depress and lonely across the different states of origin of the migrants.
