Thodupuzha is the biggest town in the Idukki District and is the commercial center of the district.TDPA is strategically placed as a gateway to the high-range parts of Kerala.It is the fastest growing town in Kerala and the main commercial center in the region.

Thodupuzha is not part of high ranges
; :banana: but it is lowland with hilly regions spread across as against wide perceptions.
Thodupuzha economy is driven by agriculture, business and small industries.

In recent years Thodupuzha has shown more interest in promoting tourism.:eek:kay:


Thodupuzha is blessed with natural scenic beauty and is ideal for all nature lovers.:eek:kay:
The famous hydra project the Malankara dam is developing as a famous tourist center.

Please move the posts to idukki thread.

MODS: This thread can be deleted.
Can't we have a dedicated Idukki thread? Idukki is the only district that has no dedicated thread of its own. Probably, this thread can be renamed as Idukki projects thread than be known as by project name.

:?Why a quick decision? Let Idukki also have their own thread. Even if its one person who posts in the thread, we could still know whats happening there right?

PS: Kindly change the name to Idukki projects and developments or something like that.

I hope this thread lives..since there are many developments happening around Thodupuzha.

1. Vengallur Bypass got Traffic lights installed and it now looks like a mini-vyttila junction
2. From Nellappara valavu, a new 2-lane highway is proposed which will go through Nediyasala(afaik) to reach Vengallur Bypass connecting Pala to Vengallur bypass directly.
3. In order to bring Thodupuzha city access to Kochi city, Futuristic plan of bypassing Muvattupuzha,Kolenchery is on anvil.
for that, Thodupuzha-Ramamangalam 34kms highway is getting developed,widened. This road will Join at Choondi junction,NH 49 IINM.

Roads inside City are currently developed and plans are there to bring Kolani and Muthalakodam under Thodupuzha city limit.

4. Thodupuzha-Kuthattukulam 19kms road through Vazhithala-Purappuzha will be level tarred,rubberized and widened wherever land is available?
This will connect Thodupuzha city to MC road at Kuthattukulam.
5. Thiruvalla-Manarcaud-Pala-Ramapuram-Vazhithala bypass to MC Road will make Thodupuzha town faster access to State Capital.

Rs.66-crore cattle feed unit to come up at Arikkuzha


Cattle feed unit to come up at Arikkuzha

Kerala Feeds Ltd will set up a factory at Arikkuzha in Manakkad panchayat near Thodupuzha to increase the production of cattle feed. “The factory will come up on a 10-acre land of the District Agriculture Farm, which will be taken on lease,” Kerala Feeds Chairman P.C. Joseph told reporters at Idukki Press Club, Thodupuzha, on Monday. “The installation of the factory will be completed in one-and-a- half years,” he said. An amount of Rs.66 crore is needed for setting up the factory. Out of this, Rs.23.75 crore will be provided by Central government and Rs.5.5 crore through the Idukki package. The remaining amount will be funded by the State government.
The State’s requirement of cattle feed is
4,000 tonnes,
but it now produces
only 2,700 tonnes.
