Vattakkinar Residents' Association (VRA)

After the year 2000, there was a sudden spurt in construction of houses in and around Vattakkinar Area. With the advent of newer channels on the TV, there was also change in life style with the result that interaction between residents was becoming scarce. Even next door neighbours were becoming strangers. Coupled with this there was no improvement in civil amenities also. To remedy these, in the year 2006, some of the residents got together and it was decided to form an association of the people residing on the west side of Beypore Road lying between Vattakkinar and Meenchanda Railway over bridge.

In a meeting held on 26.11.2006, "West Vattakkinar Residents' Association" was formed. A set of office bearers under the leadership of Mr. Venugopal.A.V (President) Dr. P. Ahamed Koya( Vice President) Mr. P.T.Imbichammu (Secretary)Mr. V.P.Ramesh(Jt.Secretary) Mr. A.Abdul Azeez (Treasurer) and eleven executive committee members were also elected.

Well begun is half done, the saying goes. When Mr. Firos voluntarily took up the creation of the web site, and agreed to do it in a time bound manner, the only task remaining was to fix the date for the inauguration of the website.
