Keywords: Ichchapuram India
Description: This is for anyone across the world

                   Ichchapuram or Ichapuram is a Municipality and Mandal headquarters in Srikakulam district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.It became a municipality with inclusion of Rattakannna, Aminsahebpeta, Purusottapuram panchayats in 1986 and it is the Ichapuram Assembly constituency headquarter. As people from different religions live together, Ichchapuram is also named Mini India. 

There lies a story about the name of this town. Long back since Nawab's tenure the Goddess of Ichapuram village is Sri Swechchavati Ammavaru. At that time ancestors decided to name this village as Swechchapuram. Gradually over the time period this has become Ichapuram in pronounciation.

Peerla Hill is a historical place in this town. In the months of Kaartikam and Margasiram thursdays in every year peerlotsavas will be conducted. Here the Muslims will do their duties as Archakas. People belonging to other religions participate in these utsavas as devotees. This shows the unity in diversity.

This municipality exists in 25.2 square kilometers. This town is well-known in the state and also in southern India. It is one of the biggest transhipment area. At the border goods' transport agencies are established around 1950. At that time border is started with 5 or 6 transport companies and one or two lorry supply agencies. Around 1980 to 1986 this transhipment area achieved peak level growth with 200 transport companies and nearly 150 lorry supply agencies. Directly two thousand employees were working in transport companies, another three thousand members were working for lorry supply agencies, and nearly four thousand kalasis (labour), belonging to surrounding 5 or 6 mandals, worked to serve the labour requirements. Directly or Indirectly a lot of families were getting livelihood through this transhipment centre. With the national permit policy brought up by the central government, the livelihood opportunities of ichapuram town started diminishing. At this time transport companies and lorry supply agencies started vanishing, a lot of employees, workers, brokers, kalasis started departing from this place to get livelihood. In this way the local families' earning sources are collapsed and poverty creeped up. This in turn resulted in more illiteracy. At present a lot of transport companies and godowns are kept vacant. In these circumstances, any industrial strategies would help the public in Ichapuram.

Another attractive feature of Ichapuram town is it's Bahuda river. Bahuda river which was born at Goniya Bosa hills in Orissa state flows over the town and villages of this mandal, and finally at Donkuru Village the river mingles with Bay of Bengal. Here in Ichapuram the farmers main cultivation is paddy. In Orissa at Bhagalotti village near Goniya Bosa hills the Orissa government has constructed a dam. Due to this, Ichapuram lands do not get even the flood water from Bahuda river. Farmers are based only on rains. This way paddy cultivation has been affected.

Arakabadra, Balakrishnapuram, Birlangi, Boddabada, Burjapadu, Dharmapuram, Edupuram, Haripuram, Kedaripuram, Keerthipuram, Kesupuram, Koligam, Kothari, Loddaputti, Mandapalli, Masakhapuram, Mutchindra, Paitari, T.Berhampuram, Telukunchi, Tulasigam village panchayats constitute Ichapuram Assembly constituency.
