Description

Kuttampuzha is a village and gram panchayat in Ernakulam district in the Indian state of Kerala. Situated 71km east of Kochi, Kuttampuzha panchayat is home to the 17.7% of total area of the Ernakulam District. The village has a large area under thick forest. There is a significant tribal population in the village (17.2% of total population). This village was part of Idukki district till 1998. Then the district borders were reorganised and the village was shifted to Ernakulam district. Following this Palakkad district became the largest district in Kerala followed by Idukki. This change also helped Ernakulam to share boundary with neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu, and to be a part of the Anamalais. Kuttampuzha panchayat was split with the formation of Edamalakkudy panchayat in 2010.[1]
