Chronology of the Eravur Town DS Office 

It is recorded that, there was an AGA division called Eravur Koralaipattu before the independence and the boundaries were Thannamunai in the east, Rethithenna (Kadawaththamadu) in the West, Verukal in the North and Pullumalai and Mangalaoya in the south. The office was situated in several location of the Chenkalady area: Initially at the residence of the clerk Ponnuthurai, then in a garden at Mavadyvembu and thereafter at the building of the Chellaypodiyar near the central hotel & bakery at Chenkalady. And currently, this division is functioning as Eravur Pattu DS of Chenkalady.

1n 1978, after tremendous efforts by several community based societies, a separate AGA division was established for Eravur and functioned from an address at Punnaikudah Road in a private building. However, the division was compelled to discontinue its function under heavy political pressure at that time.

During the period from 1979 to 1980 the office was functioning for two days per week at Eravur Town council building as a sub office and then discontinued its function due to certain reasons.

In 1990.08.22 Mr.ULM.Haneefa was appointed as Additional AGA for Eravur Pattu and the office started to function from the same day at two shops in the main street of the Earvur. Thereafter Mr.V.Yoosuff, Mr.MACM.Sadiqueen, Mr.MK.Mohideen, Mr.S.Sinniyah were appointed as AGAs for this division. The first Divisional Secretary was Mr.K.Vimalanathan. Mr.K.Vimalanathan was the one who had worked the longest in this division.

Eravur Town divisional Secretariat was officially declared as the divisional secretariat with effect from 01.01.1993 in the gazette notification of 12.06.1998, page 657.

Eravur Town Divisional Secretariat was functioning at the MPCS building  after that foundation stone for the permanent DS office building was laid near the lagoon on 29.08.2004 with the allocation of Hon.ALM.Athavullah, Minister of Eastern Infrastructure Development.

At present the office is functioning at the newly constructed building which was declared open on 26.01.2007.
