The Peringome Struggle has been held up as a singular instance of success in India in scrapping a proposed nuclear plant. This was possible by the pressure mounted by the campaign based on the socio-political and educational status as well as the demographic and geographical peculiarities of the state. The environmental consciousness promoted and spread by the ‘silent valley’ movement and the general apprehension about radiation health hazards generated by discussions about the Chernobyl disaster fresh in the minds of the people, helped the resistance to gain such momentum. Now that about two decades have elapsed, I think, it is proper to make a few possible generalisations, especially when we are exploring chances of better networking and cooperation among anti-nuclear groups all over India. Of course there are lessons to be learnt from both the positive aspects and drawbacks of our struggle.
As of 2001[update] India census, Peringome had a population of 13261 with 6388 males and 6873 females. The village has a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp. The Director General of Police is K.V. Madhusudhanan.
