The reports submitted by the Wayanad district collector and the Mananthavady sub collector based on a visit to the Kamba-mala colony near Mananthavady, Tamil Nadu, revealed that living conditions of the residents were shockingly inadequate.

A local newspaper, the Times of India had carried a report about the wretched living conditions of the colony residents, who are Sri Lankan Tamil refugees, who had been rehabilitated in the tea plantation.

The Mananthavady Sub Collector reported that the colony families were living in substandard conditions.

Basic facilities like water and other essential requirements are inadequate.

The report went on to state that many estate workers are suffering from serious diseases like cancer, and that the residents could not avail the benefits of the welfare programmes, as they don't carry a caste certificate and Below Poverty Line ration cards.
