The dam is operated and maintained by Tamil Nadu but the ownership rests with Kerala, Per the agreement with Tamil Nadu, Kerala was supposed to receive 7.25 TMC feet of water per year from the Parambikulam Aliyar Project of which the Parambikulam Dam is a part. In 2004, Kerala did not receive any water after February 10, resulting in the drying up of paddy in thousands of acres in Chittur taluk. Since this agreement has still not been met as of July 2006, Kerala Water Resources Minister has called for a review of the project agreement.On 17 October 2012, Kerala and Tamil Nadu reached an accord on Parambikulam-Aliyar water.

  • Perfect ride for the nature lovers, is given the opportunity to go on a safari of elephants (or at least that is how they call it) where you can spot deer, bison, peacocks, monkeys, elephants, among other species. Generally in this type of parks charge cost per person and another entered camera fee (so take it into account) suggest that those who want to go to this reserve will come out as more early possible (the Park opens at 7 am) to have more chance of sighting animals Wild in the place
