Mudukulathur is a legislative assembly constituency in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is a component of Ramanathapuram Lok sabha constituency.
Mudukulathur is a panchayat town in the Ramanathapuram district of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
The pearl town was known for its politics during the post-independence period from 1950 to 1970.
Most of the families in the town and neighboring villages making their living from farming, which depends on irregular seasonal rain and depleted groundwater resources. More than a third of the populationlives in poverty, social harmony is fragile because of Drought and there are no employment generating economical or industrial activities at the local level and the town lacks leadership on socio-economical spheres.
Bargaining or lobbying power of the local administration with the state government and its agencies are at best very limited to non-existent. There are no socio-economic institutions in this town or taluk.
Health is major concern in Mudukulathur, with most of the men and women around 50 years of age having blood pressure problems, diabetes, arthritis etc. For health facilities people depend on the nearby town of Parmakkudi. The government hospital serves the people of the town and the villages around it. But quality health care is a distant dream and preventive health care is something people are not aware of; this is the case with the majority of the Indian population irrespective of education or wealth levels.
As of 2001 India census, Mudukulathur had a population of 13,130. Males constituted 50% of the population and females 50%. Mudukulathur had an average literacy rate of 70%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy was 76%, and female literacy was 65%. 12% of the population was under 6 years of age.
In earlier times, the town used to be called Mutthukulathur, meaning “the town with pearls in its lakes” in Tamil with obvious reference to the three ponds “oorani”. However the name of the town changed over the years to Mudhukulathur meaning “town of oldest ponds” in an ironical reference to the absence of the pearls and the ponds drying up.
