Churachandpur (Pron:/'tʃʊraːˌtʃaːnɗpʊr/) is a district in the southwestern corner of the Indian state of Manipur that covers an area of 4,750 kilometres (2,950 mi).
In 2006 the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Churachandpur one of the country's most impoverished districts (out of a total of 640). It is one of the three districts in Manipur currently[when?] receiving funds from the Backward Regions Grant Fund (BRGF).
As of the 2011 census[update], Churachandpur district had a population of 271,274 most of whom are Kuki-Chin-Mizo (Zo) people,roughly equal to that of Barbados. This gives it a ranking of 575th in India (out of a total of 640 districts). It has a population density of 59 inhabitants per square kilometre (150/sq mi). Its population growth rate over the decade 2001–2011 was 19.03%. Churachandpur has a sex ratio of 969 females for every 1000 males, and a literacy rate of 84.29%.
Churachandpur has 9 subdivisions as follows:
From Churachandpur district, 4 subdivisions were curved out and made into a new district for the Hmar tribes after many decades of demand. These subdivisions are:
- Vangai Range
Still, some subdivisions where Hmars formed the majority or present with significant population are not included(Churachandpur, Saikot, Samulamlan, etc.) in the newly formed district. Hence, the long demand for the formation of a new district including all the Hmar inhabited areas has not yet been achieved.
