To focus the development of the areas, Ariyalur Disrict has been bifirecated in 2006 as a new district. This part is having rich deposits of gypsum and calcium carbonates and also lignite deposits, having plenty of mining opportunities and several medium and larger industries basing on theses minerals.

While looking the area of ARIYALUR DISTRICT with a birds view, it is visible that several hundreds of households are living semi thatched and thatched dwelling places and most of them did not have properly protected wall structure and even not having the windows for ventilation and baring the sanitary facilities. The environment hygiene is at the bottom strata and awareness on water, sanitation and hygiene are never reached to rural hamlets and the open air defecation is still being practiced and never abandoned.
