Our Panchayat Board

    There are 22 Town Panchayats in Vellore district and among them Thakkolam is one of the First Grade Town Panchayat. The office of the Town Panchayat is situated at the Arakonam - Chennai road.

    Majority population of the town consists of two communities, Vanniars and Sengunthars. In addition to these dominant communities, there are other constituents such as Yadhavas, Chettiars, Muslims, reserved communities representing SCs (11.74 per cent) and STs (1.51 per cent) etc living in 2900 houses at 46 streets. As per Census 2001, total population of the town is 9908, consisting of 4935 males and 4973 females.

    Literacy rate of the town was 70 per cent and it is far ahead of the national literacy rate of 59.50 per cent. Out of the male and female populations, nearly 80 per cent and 58 per cent respectively are literate.

   As prevailing elsewhere, the main political parties of Tamil Nadu, namely, the DMK and the AIADMK dominate the political activities of the town. The other important political party dominating the affairs of the town is the Congress. The town produced so far one MLA, late Mr S.J. Ramasamy Mudhaliar who represented both DMK and AIADMK parties at different times as MLA. It also produced two Chairmans for the Arakonam Union, late Mr K.A. Manicka Mudhaliar and late Mr S.K. Subramania Mudhaliar and the both represented the Congress party. The current Chairman of the Thakkolam village Panchayat, Mr S. Nagarajan also represents the Congress party.

   The Thakkolam town Panchayat was established on 01.10.1917 i.e. much before the independence. It became the second grade Town Panchayat on 01.10.1961 and later upgraded as the first grade Town Panchayat on 01.10.1969. Total area covered and administered by the Town Panchayat is 8.50 Sq. KM. The Panchayat consists of 15 wards and the same are represented presently by nine male Councilors and six female Councilors.
