Kumbanad is a place in koipuram panchayath Pathanamthitta district of Central Travancore area in Kerala state, in India. It is a part of Thiruvalla Taluk.[1] It is situated on the (Thiruvalla-Pathanamthitta-Kumbazha Road — SH07). Kumbanad is one of the wealthiest settlement in India.[2] It has also the highest number of Christian houses of worship in India, estimated to be over fifty, for an area of its size.[3][4]

The nearest airport is Cochin International Airport and Trivandrum airport. The proposed rural Aranmula International Airport would be the closest airport upon completion, at 5 km away. An airport in central Travancore is an aspiration of millions of central Travancorians working all over the world who support the Government exchequer with much needed foreign currency. In central Travancore most of household depending on remittance of their sons and daughters from foreign destinations. Today they had to depend distant Nedumbassery or Triavandrum airports. Vested interested urban lobbies are delaying the airport with help of environmentalist and religious fundamentalists.

Etymology[edit]

Kumbanad is derived from two words in malayalam, Kumbhi and Nadu, which together mean "the land of elephants". It is believed that many wild animals and elephants roamed about this place a hundred years ago.[5][6]

History[edit]

It is believed that several centuries before, Kumbanad was a prosperous village occupied by upper caste Hindus. The many fresh water tanks found in and around Kumbanad are attributed to that period. The community perished possibly by invading tribesmen and the land turned into a forest inhabited by wild animals and elephants.

Economy[edit]

Remittance from NRIs is the primary source of income. The large number of ATMs and high bank density are also attributed to large bank deposits. As of 2009, the bank deposits for the Kumbanad-Pullad-Thiruvalla belt are estimated to be Indian Rupee symbol.svg 5,400 Crore.[2]

There are other small business and services that depend on the foreign remittance. Since most of the emigrants are young and middle aged, most of the settled population is old-aged. There are services and health care units that cater to their needs.[3][4] 90% of the emigrants are from America,& Middle East.
