Furthermore, an analysis has been carried out on the situation of the discrimination faced by the Kashmiri Pandits, the people of the states of Northeast India and most recently the migrant workers who have been displaced as a result of COVID 19. This study focuses on theoretical and the legal provisions dealing with the people who have suffered due to conflict induced displacements. It concludes by suggesting measures that need to be undertaken to alleviate the difficulties of those affected.
