Overview[edit]

The village panchayat includes two nearby hamlets, Satyanarayanapuram and Dushmanpet Thanda. Satyanarayanapuram was formed as a settlement in recent decades, populated by immigrants from the Guntur district. Dushmanpet Thanda is a settlement formed by people of the nomadic Lambadi tribe. These two hamlets are two kilometers from the village of Kondramutla, to the north and northwest, respectively. The number of voters in the panchayat was around 2,700 as of August 2006.

This village is basically an agrarian village and most of the residents are either farmers or marginal farmers. Kondramutla is considered to be one of the very few prosperous villages in the mandal in terms of education and entrepreneurship. On the political front, this village is considered to be very active and progressive. Sri Nalabolu Govindarajulu, born in this village was elected as the MLA of Vinukonda constituency in the 1950s. He won over Sri Pulupula Sivaiah, a stalwart of the then Communist Party of India and was considered as a giant-killer. Chekuri and Nalabolu are two prominent surnames in Kondramutla. Chekuri families excel in education. Most of Chekuri's young generation is working in the USA. Chekuri Street is called "Jubilee Hills of Kondramutla" by local people. After Sri Nalabolu Govindarajulu, Sri Nalabolu Venkata Swamy was the main and mass leader in this village. Most of the village development was held at the time of Nalabolu Venkata Swamy as the president of kondramutla, like panchayat building, emerging primary school to upper primary school even milk collection center also established by Sri Nalabolu Venkata Swamy. Chekuri Venkateswarlu(familiarly known as "CH") plays a key role in the politics of Kondtramutla. Nalabolu families are more inclined towards politics.
