Social interaction was computed based on migrants who regularly interact with friends and neighbours are considered to have social interactions. This study is based on the 300 interviews of quantitative data and 30 In-Depth Interviews of male migrants who were migrated from Andhra Pradesh to Bhiwandi city of Mumbai. Data has been collected at destination place through structured questionnaire from 300 migrants, 100 from each of three categories Migrants never married, married but not staying with their wives and migrants married and staying with their wives. In-depth interviews were conducted with selected migrants based on their risk behaviour associated, a separate guideline was canvassed to collect the in-depth information on migrants. Total thirty migrants each of three categories from 10 interviews were covered. Descriptive statistics and bi-variate analysis have been used and for In-depth interviews, data has been analysed by using Atlas-ti software. All the interviews were assigned to Atlas-ti and pre-defined codes are assigned to the proper text from each interview. Overall the study explores certain socio-behavioural traits of migrants that are much influenced by their social networking behaviour. Migrants social interaction, feeling loneliness, consumption of tobacco, alcohol, visiting red-light areas are reported irrespective of their marital status and it also observed that these behavioural traits are not much related to their marital status. Social interaction also seems to be low among migrants who have the high score in job stress scale. This shows that higher social interaction clearly depends on the satisfaction related to job and life. Feeling loneliness is low among the migrants who have the high score in negative emotion scale, and the low score in job stress scale. Among the migrants who visited red light areas for sexual intercourse, 67.5 percent reported that they have visited with friends while 32.5 percent said that they visited alone its shows that the role of social networking.
