Trade & Commerce

Shaktan Thampuran the torch bearer to shed away the darkness of superstition and illiteracy invited nine Christian families to Thrissur to lay foundation for the trade and commerce of this town. As a result, Thrissur rose up as the trend setter of business in the erstwhile state of Cochin. Before Thrissur prospered as the centre of business, rice used to be imported from Singapoor and Burma. But the people of Kerala were not satisfied that rice as if a foul smell resulting from the long time taken for transportation.


The location of Trichur district in Kerala is ideal for industrial development. Position of the city, facilities for transporting goods through rail, road and water, near to the Cochin port and availability of cheap man power etc... are favorable to the development of industry. Electricity and water supply are factors congenial for the growth and development of industries. But industrial development has been handicapped for want of natural resources and the raw materials required for the major manufacturing industries.


Paddy cultivationPaddy cultivation is by far the largest agricultural practice pursued by a major section of the people. The low lying lands are cultivated with paddy and are fit only for this purpose. The major irrigation works in the district are the Peechi, Vazhani, Chalakudy and Cheerakuzhi Projects. The ayacut of Peechi project which is the largest consists of 46,000 acres of cultivable land.
