Alathur Lok Sabha Elections and Results 2014


One of the 20 parliamentary constituencies in the southern Indian state of Kerala is Alathur. This constituency came into existence as recently as 2008, following the Delimitation of Parliamentary and Assembly Constituencies Order of 2008. The total number of electorates in the Alathur Lok Sabha
Constituency (constituency number 9) according to Election Commission of India 2009 reports are 1,100,843 of which 534,049 are males and 566,794 are females. This seat is reserved for candidates belonging to the scheduled caste community.

With seven Vidhan Sabha segments, this constituency is spread over the districts of Palakkad and Thrissur. Before the reorganization of the constituencies as carried out by the Delimitation Commission of India, three out of the seven assembly segments belonged to the erstwhile Lok Sabha constituency of Ottapalam, reserved for the scheduled caste. Alathur has an estimated population of more than four lakh people.

The Palakkad district is popularly called the 'Rice Bowl of India', owing to the production of superior quality rice in this district. The Alathur constituency is dependent on the agricultural sector for the major bulk of its economy, thus being termed the 'granary of Kerala', although the constituency also thrives on textile industry and the power loom industry, such as Alagappa Textiles, Kerala Lakshmi Mills, Thrissur Cotton Mills, and Rajgopal Textiles in Thrissur, which add to the revenue of the Thrissur district.

The Palakkad district has been recognised as economically backward, thus being funded by the government under the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.
