Development is still miles away at Mettupalayam

Mettupalayam has always been the vegetable town that leads to the holidays destination Ooty. Spread over on the southern and northern banks of River Bhavani, the town with over four lakh population has been struggling hard to balance environment protection and development.

The Mettupalayam Assembly constituency includes the Mettupalayam Municipality, the town panchayats of Sirumugai, Karamadai, Gudalur, No. 4 Veerapandi and village panchayats in the Karamadai Panchayat Union.

Agriculture is the primary occupation – banana, vegetables and areca nut being the important crops.

Rangasamy of the Bhavani River Water and Groundwater Protection Council says that effluents discharged from the textile and paper industries have made the river water unfit for cultivation. That the water is also polluted by sewage from households and the Mettupalayam town residents don’t get clean drinking water is another issue.
