100% electrification of all tribal hamlets are now under progress and an amount of Rs 176.00 Lakh was allotted to Palakkad district including Attappadi.


 This is a special package programme launched during 2014-15 by allocating funds in addition to the normal share of TSP in the State. It is utilized for the socio economic development of ST population living in ST settlements, particularly those in inaccessible/ remote areas.

Infrastructural facilities like house to houseless ST families, water supply, sanitation, resettlement of ST families living in difficult conditions; tie up with MGNREGS in providing wage employment; health, nutrition, women & children development programmes; programmes for preserving the tribal dialects and culture; tie up with Kudumbasree in alleviating the incidence of tribal poverty; programmes of ICDS, NSAP etc. are certain components of the package.


The concept of comprehensive development of tribal hamlets is of atmost importance in addressing grass root issues and ensuring unskewed development.  It is envisaged to give thrust on overall development of unattended issues of hamlets on a case to ease basis by allocating a consolidated fund of Rs. 1 crore for each hamlet for various activities viz.  Drinking water, Electricity, Solar lighting, Link Roads, Foot path, Community centres, Anganwadies etc.

The development needs in the habitats are identified in accordance with the priorities determined by the beneficiaries, in meetings of Oorukoottams with prior notice, headed by MLAs, and MPs and representatives of three tier Panchayathiraj institutions concerned and officials including District Collector, District Planning Officer and all other district officers of line departments to be held in the habitat itself.

The scheme was started in 2013-14. During 2013-14 one Hamlet was selected in Attappady. The progress of implementation is shown below:
