Abstract: India is a massive continent-sized nation with a total of 28 individual states and 7 federally recognized territories. It is a country of many different peoples and languages. There are dozens of dialects spoken locally, many distinct cultural traditions, and a wide range of single and dual allegiances. It is only inevitable that, in the middle of such incredible variety, local sentiments, local parties, local institutions, and similar other organizations should develop, all with the goal of representing local interests and giving platforms for local voices. The current research attempts to examine the background of regional movements in India and to explore their motivations. The article also addresses the states’ duties and contributions to regional movements in India. The research found that regional migrations in a democratic society like India are a continuous occurrence tied to socio-cultural and political dynamics.

Key words: Recognized territories, Local institution, Cultural traditions, Regional Movement
