Recently migrants’ remittances have been considered as one of the major sources of development funding for grassroots development in the labor-sending countries in the Third World. However, the whole discussion about remittance and its developmental impact is heavily tilted towards the economic consequences overlooking other socio-cultural dimensions. This study aims at the political consequences that remittance produces in the home communities of the migrants and finds considerable influence of remittance in restructuring the political participation on the levels of both the community and the family.
