About the District

Malkangiri district is named after its headquarters town named Malkangiri. During formation of Odisha Province in 1936, Malkangiri was a “TALUK” of Nabarangpur sub-division of Koraput district of Odisha. In 1962, it was upgraded to a sub-division of Koraput District. At present Malkangiri got its identity as an Independent district due to reorganization of districts of Odisha as per a notification on 1st Oct 1992 and with effect from 2nd Oct 1992 covering an area of 5791 sq. km. It lies between 170 45’ N to 180 40’ N latitude and 810 10’ E to 820 E longitude of the district. The district is divided into two distinct physical divisions. The Eastern part is covered with steep ghats, platues & valleys, sparsely inhabited by primitive tribes, notable among who are Bondas, Koyas, Porajas & Didayis. The district is moderately literate, with the number of literate males far out numbering the number of literate females. The history of Malkangiri seems to be in no way less thrilling and adventurous than any other place of India. The land of dense inaccessible forests, small but beautiful rivers, undulating plateaus and splendorous rich tribal culture, Malkangiri has its history of human civilization enrooted to as long as 2500 years back. Prior to the modern civilization, many mythological episodes took place in and around Malkangiri. One ancient Shiva Temple now submerged in the Chitrakonda Reservoir was known as the second Lingaraj of Odisha. This famous Shiva Temple was visited by Sri Chaitanya Deva during his visit to Nandapur. Existence of a number of Shiva Temples in and around Malkangiri signifies the fact that the ancient Kings were Shaivists.

As per Census-2011, Malkangiri had population of 613,192 in 2011 of which male and female were 303,624 and 309,568 respectively. In 2001 census, Malkangiri had a population of 504,198 of which males were 252,507 and remaining 251,691 were females.

The culture of Malkangiri District is displayed by the song and dance programmes of its tribal people, the major portion of the district’s population. The chief tribes seen here are Bondas, Gadabas, Kondhs and Koyas.

In the district, there has been change in the socioeconomic status of women since inception of SHG movement by Mission Shakti in 2001. Women SHGs in the district promote savings among themselves and use the pooled resources to meet the urgent needs of members. They rotate this common pooled resource within the members with a very small rate of interest. At present there are 5029 SHGs in the district.
