• Citizens are free to reside and settle in any part of India.
• This right allows lakhs of people to migrate from villages to towns and from poorer regions of the country to prosperous regions and big cities.
• For example, a person who belongs to Assam wants to start a business in Hyderabad. He may not have any connections with that place or people there, he may have not seen it ever. Yet as a citizen of India, he has the right to set up base there.
