Kerala is the most literate state in India. Hence the educated youths there are not inclined to do any menial jobs. They all want to do only while color and skilled jobs that may get in gulf countries and elsewhere. Punjab and Maharashtra are the most industrially developed states in the country. Hence most of the youths there may find jobs in the industries and related trade. Obviously that can lead to shortage of man power for unskilled and menial jobs. Hence what option for them other than importing labors from other states?

I donot know anything about the youths in Maharashtra and Punjab. What yoy have observed about the youths in Kerala is correct, they are not doing any productive work, but are leading a wealthy life style. Even sons of labourers are seen speeding away on their own motorbikes, with mobiles glued to their ears. Here lies the saddest part of the story..all these young men are gangsters engaged in Hawala transactions, drugs traffcking, liquour smuggling, working as recovery agents of private money lenders, body guards of some goonda leader, or members of maffia gangs etc. With the existing unholy nexus between the police, maffia and the politicians, these youngsters have a field day.

The main reason is the high wages demanded from the employer to shun local labour and they take French leave leaving the work to suffer , the imported labour ,start their work earlier and have no other avocations in a remote place . The local youths are keen in political and cinema and friends in the neighbourhood ,they does not like to be minions to their local employer ,married to an working woman the local youth enjoy themselves in idle pursuits and when pressed for lively hood they migrate to other places and local youth maintain dignity in employment ,that could be the sole reason for purposeless idling by youths in native places .

I do not know of Kerala. But in Punjab all the young people are trying to settle abroad. And labour from Bihar is cheap. They have flooded the farm sector.
In Maharashtra,there are certain types of jobs that people from other states will do, at cheaper rates. And there is shortage of trained local manpower.

I think you can avoid Maharashtra from the list and also you cannot find youths in Punjab like in Kerala.
In Punjab youths are trying to go anywhere in Europe by any means while in Kerala youths expects to marry some nurses working abroad and go behind them !!
