Fall in number of Indians migrating to Britain
The data is based on compulsory National Insurance number registrations made by both short and long-term migrants to Britain.
The number of Indians migrating to the UK dropped by a significant 10 per cent last year compared with the 2016 figures, according to the data released here today.
The UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) data showed that Indian nationals continued to dominate the skilled migrant force of the country, with over half of all skilled work visas last year going to Indians.
It found that while Indians continued to account for the largest migrant group from outside the European Union (EU), the numbers were 10 per cent lower in 2017 when compared with 2016.
