There were about 45 refugee camps setup in East Punjab each housing about 50,000 to 70,000 refugees. The largest of them was in Kurukshetra which became a huge tented city housing around 300,000 refugees. Most of the refugees were from Multan and Sheikhupura area of West Punjab. This camp was finally disbanded in April, 1950.
