Idukki's unofficial capital is Thodupuzha. There are 2 medical colleges. one is private Al-Azhar Medical college and the other one possibly will be a government medical college. There is not much support or interest to build new district capital at Painavu. In the case of Idukki district, People from Thodupuzha taluka are culturally and geographically are very different to the Hills. Thodupuzha taluk essentially is a continuation of western midlands and planes.

IIRC, 30% of the funds meant for Idukki goes to Thodupuzha taluk. During Malanad(Idukki) district formation, Low ranges (Upper Midlands) based Political parties included Thodupuzha Taluk also to the Idukki district and there after, Thodupuzha has seen the growth like never before. Before, Thodupuzha region was part of Ernakulam district, stagnating for few decades, but got the ticket(unofficial HQ of newly formed Idukki district) and presto! We've the current Thodupuzha which is growing fast to be the biggest urban centre east of Kochi. Thus, Thodupuzha reaps the benefits of Idukki district yet strives to develop into a midland city.

Actually, People in the high ranges does not really approve Thodupuzha as they know developments are not reaching there because low range region "hijacks" development.

I was shocked to see the capital of Idukki in 2004, not even like a big village. I think Thodupuzha,Munnar, Or Kumili can be made as capital. In mountainous districts, the capital should not be located in a central place but to a place where connectivity exists. went to thodupuzha a few times being a polymer student to visit friends

Kattappana to focus on infrastructure

The Cabinet decision to upgrade Kattappana grama panchayat to a municipality is expected to set speed up development of the town, which is the main commercial centre of the high ranges. In the topographically divided Idukki district, Thodupuzha, in the plains, is the only municipality.

Grama panchayat president Johny Kulampally said a proposal to upgrade Kattappana was made in 2012-13. The panchayat did not qualify then because if failed to meet two criteria — density of population and the number of men engaged in agriculture, which was the main occupation. This time, there were no hurdles to the municipal status.

From Idukki district, Adimaly too had applied for upgrade. Adimaly was divided into two creating the Valara grama panchayat.

Mr. Kulampally said the new status would help Kattappana get more funds for development, especially for infrastructure. The 52.77 sq km panchayat has a population of 42,846 as per the 2011 census. There is no reserve forest area in the panchayat, which has coffee, cardamom, pepper, and tea as the main cash crops.

Panchayat secretary P.V. Biju said the panchayat already had ISO certification 9001-2008 for quality management and it was an e-panchayat with the digitalisation of all records. There are around 32,000 voters in the panchayat and the number of wards is 22. With the new municipal status there would be 30 to 32 wards, he said. Now the focus was on infrastructure building and the speedy development, he said.

No one cares about the mountain areas. I am wondering when will the people of Kadaveri the last village in Kerala Bordering kodaikanal taluk will see some development?

People in Idukki are suffering because of the low value of spices and other agricultural efforts. Cities like Kochi and low lands are seeing lot of people from Idukki seeking jobs especially northern part of Idukki district like Adimaly etc.

For that separation of Low-ranges must happen. But, that will not happen due to KC(M). Idukki's fate is almost written. Had Muvattupuzha district formed with Thodupuzha taluka includes, Idukki would've benefited. But, the KC(M) leaders are adamant and are quiet happy enjoying Idukki's funds to propel Thodupuzha. They cannot accept Thodupuzha under Muvattupuzha anyways.

They want to reap the benefits of high ranges staying as part of Idukki district. It is the truth. For the development of Highranges, the district must include only the hills. Babu Paul IAS, suggested this at least 3 decades back. But, low range(Thodupuzha-Pala) based political lobby is very strong and thwarted the formation of Muvattupuzha district multiple times in the last 3 decades.

I am not supporting seperating Thoduypuzha from idukki district due to demographic reasons. This will make Idukki district having a substantial Tamil demography. Now itself, Tamil Nationalist Movements are demanding merger of Idukki district with Tamil Nadu. Out of 5 taluks, Tamil population is substantial in Devikulam, Udumbanchola, and Peermade taluks. In Idukki and Thodupuzha taluks, more than 95% are Malayalis.

Hence, Devikulam (including Adimali, Munnar, Marayur, etc) should be go to Muvattupuzha District. Devikulam Taluk can be bifurcate into 2 taluks - Devikulam and Adimali. Both taluks can be part of Devikulam RDO in Muvattupuzha district.

Arakkulam and Udumbannoor villages should be transferred from Thodupuzha to Idukki taluk.

Idukki District need to reorganize into 3 Revenue Divisions - Peermade, Idukki, and Thodupuzha. Only Low Range Areas should be under Thodupuzha RDO.

Planned Development should happen in towns like Munnar, Devikulam, Adimali, Kumily, Vandiperiyar, Peermade, Nedumkandam, Vagamon, Idukki (Painav - Kuyilimala - Cheruthoni - Idukki Dam - Mariapuram - Upputhode stretch).

At least by 2020, Munnar and Adimali should be elevated as Municipalities.

& heard recently that these so called Tamils (mostly plantation labours) are getting secret support from TN government, allowing them to buy lands and permanently settle in Eastern part of the district. This movement is to counter the opposition by locals in Idukki dst against Mullaperiyar , so that at that time, Tamils in Idukki dst will ask for merger of Idukki to TN. This already happened once, Tamils in Munnar demanded merger of Devikulam n Udumbanchola taluks with TN!

I did not mean to hurt anyone, this is India, anyone can settle anywhere. But settling in a particular place for dubious purpose of overthrowing the local population is not the correct way.

In reality it should not be the case. They should have voter id at one place only. Lot of people from Idukki also come and purchase lands in theni district.
In reality My home town is full of KL vehicles.Nothing to get hurt here. the administration is inefficient in plugging the loop holes

The best solution is planned developments in Munnar, Adimali, Devikulam, Kumily, Peermade, Vandiperiyar, Nedumkandam, Idukki (Idukki, Cheruthoni, Painav, Mariapuram, Upputhode, etc), Vagamon, etc

Why Sugathakumari, Kummanam Rajashekharan, BJP leaders, VS Achu, etc silent on this Neutrino Project? Why BJP Govt is supporting this project, which will make the entire Idukki (Kerala) and Tenni (Tamil Nadu) districts as Nuclear-Chemical Wastelands. Morteover, drilling of 1.3 km deep tunnel will also damage those dams in Idukki district and in Tamil Nadu.

Kerala should support MDMK leader Vaiko in this agitation:

This Neutrino Project is totally waste of money. It will not create any jobs or generate revenue. The land of farmers is forcefully occupied by Central Govt for this project.It was started by UPA-II's Jairam Ramesh, who got money from World Bank. Following this, Jairam Ramesh introduced Gadgil Report and initiated Neutrino Project. Now BJP Govt is going to implement this anti-farmer project.

Supporting Tamils as they are our brothers, we shall do. But why should be support Vaiko?? He is pakka anti-malayali & anti-Kerala! Have you heard his remarks on Kerala & Malayalies at the time of Mullaperiyar issue?
