According to an article by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, pollution in India's cities has led to residents migrating back to rural lands. A study by the Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health states that 2.5 million residents in India have died early as a result of pollution in 2015, exceeding any other nation.
Thus residents are migrating from urban cities to rural areas, such as on the coast or mountains.
