Ponnampet: Over a year after the announcement of  the formation of Ponnampet taluk in Kodagu district, the State Government in a notification issued on July 3, has officially notified Ponnampet as a new taluk under the Karnataka Land Revenue Act.

The previous JD(S)-Congress Coalition Government, headed by H.D. Kumaraswamy, had announced formation of Ponnampet taluk by carving out Virajpet taluk and Kaveri taluk (Kushalnagar) by carving out Somwarpet taluk in Kodagu district in February last year and the current BJP Government has issued the notification for Ponnampet taluk after no objections or suggestions were received by the State Government.

The new Ponnampet taluk comprises four hoblis with the inclusion of 49 villages bifurcated from Virajpet taluk. The four hoblis are Ponnampet, Balele, Srimangala and Hudikeri.
