Many Sri Lankan refugees are reported to be returning home from India.

850 people have returned with the help of the UNHCR. Another 1005 refugees have returned without international assistance. The returnees are provided transport and other basic facilities to reach their home towns. The UNHCR Representative in Sri Lanka has said they expect more refugees will start to consider returning home, reconnecting with their families, and rebuilding their lives in this post-conflict phase.
