The Action Committee for the Return of Migrants (ACRM) came into being in February 2001 as a result of an interaction of some concerned Kashmiris including some NRIs at the Press Club of India, New Delhi. It was formed to evolve a strategy for the honourable return of migrants to the Valley. It was felt that there was a strong desire among the displaced minority community to return to their roots in the Valley. However, for their return, a conducive atmosphere needed to be created with the help and goodwill of the majority community.
