    GOKARNA

    The Mahabaleshwar temple is located in Gokarna 32 km. away from Kumta taluk, a sacred pilgrimage site in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka. One of the seven Mukti Sthalas of Karnataka, Gokarna is also known for its idyllic beaches and serene landscape. The Mahabaleshwar Shiva temple is regarded to be next in sanctity only to the Vishwanath Siva temple in Varanasi and is often called the Dakshina Kashi.

    The Mahabaleshwar temple enshrines the Aatma Linga of Lord Shiva. Legend has it that the holy Lingam was given by Shiva to king Ravana to make his kingdom an invincible fortress. Varuna and Ganesha tricked Ravana in placing the Linga here and in spite of the might exerted by Ravana (Maha Bala) the Linga remain rooted to the ground.

    The six foot tall Shiva Lingam, enclosed in a square Saligrama Peetha, can be seen only once in 40 years, when the Ashta Bandana Kumbhahishekam is performed. It is customary here to have a dip in the sea and then worship a Shivalingam made out of sand, before worshipping at the temple. Maha Sivaratri is of great significance in this shrine located in idyllic surroundings.

    FOREWORD The District Census Handbook (DCHB) is an important publication of the Census Organization since 1951. It contains both Census and non Census data of urban and rural areas for each District. The Census data provide information on demographic and socio-economic characteristics of population at the lowest administrative unit i.e. of each Village and Town and ward of the District. The Primary Census Abstract (PCA) part of this publication contains Census data including data on household amenities collected during 1st.phase of the Census i.e. House Listing and Housing Census. The non Census data presented in the DCHB is in the form of Village Directory and Town Directory contain information on various infrastructure facilities available in the village and town viz; education, medical, drinking water, communication and transport, post and telegraph, electricity, banking, and other miscellaneous facilities. Later on, the Telegraph Services were closed by the Government of India on 15th. July, 2013. The data of DCHB are of considerable importance in the context of planning and development at the grass-root level. 2. In the 1961 Census, DCHB provided a descriptive account of the District, administrative statistics, Census tables and Village and Town Directory including Primary Census Abstract. This pattern was changed in 1971 Census and the DCHB was published in three parts: Part-A related to Village and Town Directory, Part-B to Village and Town PCA and Part-C comprised analytical report, administrative statistics, District Census tables and certain analytical tables based on PCA and amenity data in respect of Villages. The 1981 Census DCHB was published in two parts: Part-A contained Village and Town Directory and Part-B the PCA of Village and Town including the SCs and STs PCA up to Tahsil/Town levels. New features along with restructuring of the formats of Village and Town Directory were added. In Village Directory, all amenities except electricity were brought together and if any amenity was not available in the referent Village, the distance in broad ranges from the nearest place having such an amenity, was given. 3. The pattern of 1981 Census was followed by and large for the DCHB of 1991 Census except the format of PCA. It was restructured. Nine-fold industrial classification of main workers was given against the four-fold industrial classification presented in the 1981 Census. In addition, sex wise population in 0-6 age group was included in the PCA for the first time with a view to enable the data users to compile more realistic literacy rate as all children below 7 years of age had been treated as illiterate at the time of 1991 Census. One of the important innovations in the 1991 Census was the Community Development Block (CD Block) level presentation of Village Directory and PCA data instead of the traditional Tahsil/Taluk/PS level presentation. 4. As regards DCHB of 2001 Census, the scope of Village Directory was improved by including some other amenities like banking, recreational and cultural facilities, newspapers & magazines and `most important commodity manufactured in a Village in addition to prescribed facilities of earlier Censuses. In Town Directory, the statement on Slums was modified and its coverage was enlarged by including details on all slums instead of notified slums. 5. The scope and coverage of Village Directory of 2011 DCHB has been widened by including a number of new amenities in addition to those of 2001. These newly

    added amenities are: Pre-Primary School, Engineering College, Medical College, Management Institute, Polytechnic, Non-formal Training Centre, Special School for Disabled, Community Health Centre, Veterinary Hospital, Mobile Health Clinic, Medical Practitioner with MBBS Degree, Medical Practitioner with no degree, Traditional Practitioner and faith Healer, Medicine Shop, Community Toilet, Rural Sanitary Mart or Sanitary Hardware Outlet in the Village, Community Bio- gas, Sub Post Office, Village Pin Code, Public Call Office, Mobile Phone Coverage, Internet Cafes/ Common Service Centre, Private Courier Facility, Auto/Modified Autos, Taxis and Vans, Tractors, Cycle-pulled Rickshaws, Carts driven by Animals, Village connected to National Highway, State Highway, Major District Road, and Other District Road, Availability of Water Bounded Macadam Roads in Village, ATM, Self-Help Group, Public Distribution System(PDS) Shop, Mandis/Regular Market, Weekly Haat, Agricultural Marketing Society, Nutritional Centers (ICDS), Anganwadi Centre, ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist), Sports Field, Public Library, Public Reading Room, Assembly Polling station, Birth & Death Registration Office.

    PREFACE Dr. C. Chandramouli, I.A.S. the Registrar General & Census Commissioner, India

    has traced the history of the district Census Handbooks in the foreword to the 2011 series of the District Census Handbooks (DCHBs). He has also succinctly explained the scope and coverage of the District Census Handbooks. These volumes contain salient data on the population for every village and town as revealed by 2011 Census. It also contains a wealth of information regarding villages and towns which throw some light on the circumstances in which people live and is therefore relevant to the data on the population. This information is also of considerable importance in the context of planned development.

    The District Census Handbook is divided into two parts: Part A - contains information regarding each village and town (Village Directory and Town Directory non census data collected from various sources) and Part B containing the population data collected during 2011 Census - the Primary Census Abstract (PCA). The data published in Part B was collected during February-March 2011 in the Population Enumeration.

    The process of data collection for the Village Directory and Town Directory (Part A)

    commenced in 2009 and the reference date is 31.12.2009. The Village Directory formats were mailed to the Deputy Commissioners of Districts for obtaining the village wise particulars through Village Accountants. Similarly the Town Directory formats were mailed to the Commissioners of Corporations, Chief Officers of Town Municipal Councils, Town Panchayats, etc. The village wise and town wise data furnished by these officers were then examined exhaustively for consistency in reporting and comparability with the information published in the District Census Handbooks 2001. The Household Schedules, which were canvassed to collect the population data during 2011 Census, were scanned and data captured was processed electronically through ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) Technology. The Primary Census Abstract (PCA) was generated centrally on the computers by the Office of the Registrar General, India.

    In compilation of the District Census Handbooks, the Census Directorate had the

    co-operation of various departments of the State/Central Government. The Census Directorate gratefully acknowledges their co-operation.

    I take this opportunity to offer my thanks to Dr. C. Chandramouli, I.A.S. the

    Registrar General & Census Commissioner, India for his valuable guidance and support. I appreciate the supervision and support given by Sri N.

    HISTORY AND SCOPE OF THE DISTRICT CENSUS HANDBOOK

    The need of data at the grass root level for the administrative and planning purposes at sub micro level as well as academic studies prompted the innovation of District Census Handbook. District Census Handbook is a unique publication from the Census organization which provides most authentic details of census and non-census information from village and town level to district level. The District Census Handbook was firstly introduced during the 1951 Census. It contains both census and non census data of urban as well as rural areas for each district. The census data contain several demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the lowest administrative unit i.e. of each village and town and ward of the district. The non census data comprise of data on availability of various civic amenities and infrastructural facilities etc. at the town and village level which constitute Village Directory and Town Directory part of the DCHB. The data of DCHB are of considerable importance in the context of planning and development at grass-root level.

    In 1961 census DCHB provided a descriptive account of the district, administrative statistics, census tables and village and town directory including Primary Census Abstract.

    BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DISTRICT

    In accordance with the general practice this district too has been named after Uttara Kannada, the district headquarter town. For more than a century and a half this district was known as North-Kanara or simply as Kanara in the official records and the Gazetteer compiled during the 1980s. In 1977 the name of the district was changed to Uttara Kannada vide the Government of Karnataka Notification No. RDF.6.TNV.76 dated 31.1.1977. The present change in name does not signify any material alteration in its name, for Uttara Kannada is a mere Kannada translation of the term North Kanara, the former Anglicized name. It was the Portuguese who bestowed the name Kanara (also spelt as Canara) to this territory along with its southern counterpart. The British who took control of these areas after the fall of Tipu Sultan in 1799 retained the name for the newly formed district. The entire coastal tract of the State was part of the Madras Presidency from 1817 to 1862. For a brief period from 1800-1817 however this district stood bifurcated from its southern counterpart. In 1862 the composite Kanara district was not only bifurcated but the northern half was transferred to the then Bombay Presidency while the southern portion was continued to be the part of Madras Presidency. Traditionally, this coastal area of the state consists of the Deshas or countries named Konkana, Haiga and Tuluva as one moves down from north to south.

    With a narrow coastal strip, a section of the Sahyadri mountain range and an expansive tract of the tableland to its east the district have a hoary past. The coastal area is supposed to have been retrieved from the sea by Parashurama the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that this coastal tract formed part of Ravana's kingdom. Gokarna has become a holy place being the abode of Lord Shiva. The Ishvaralinga here is now known as Mahabaleshvara. Kumbhakarna, the brother of Ravana is said to have performed penance in area belonging to this district. Yana, a place of pilgrimage is known as Bhairava-Kshetra and regarded as the site where the demon Bhasmasura was finally vanquished. Lord Shiva himself is said to have performed penance at Kavala Cave here to overcome the ill effects cast on him by Shani (Saturn). Banavasi is associated with the episode relating to the slaying of the demons Madhu and Kaitabha by Lord Krishna.

    Black and red ware pottery of the megalithic period discovered at Kantraji near Banavasi and the mesolithic tools found at several places between Gokarna and Karwar provide enough evidence to infer that certain parts of this district were inhabited by human beings during the pre-historic times. Excavations near Banavasi have brought to light the remnants of burnt brick structures, underground drainage pipes and several terracota figurines and also silver and lead coins. Mauryan emperor Ashoka, is stated in Mahavamsha that a Buddhist missionary was deputed to Banavasi to propagate Buddhism in this region. Ptolemy, the Greek geographer (150 A.D.) has mentioned Honavar in his travelogues. Undoubtedly, the district has an impressive historical past.

    According to a stone inscription installed in memory of Shivasiri Pulimavi this district was under the sway of the Shatakarnis during the earliest period of known history. Gautamiputra Shatakarni is stated to have restored the fortunes of this dynasty and Vasistiputra Shatakarni (130-159 A.D.) succeeded him as the coins of this period as well as a little later period when Chutus were ruling these parts have been discovered near Banavasi.

    During the second and third centuries, the Chutus who were related to and

    were the feudatories of the Shatakarnis were ruling from Banavasi. Four Prakrit inscriptions and the lead coins unearthed bear testimony to this fact. Towards the close of the third century the Pallavas of Kanchi established their supremacy and retained power until the legendary Mayura Varma Kadamba drove them out from these parts. The founder of this dynasty is said to be Trinetra or Trilochana and the family got the name Kadamba on account of a Kadamba tree near its residential house. Mayura Sharma the son of Bandhusena and the grandson of Vishnu Sharma went to Kanchi, the capital of Pallavas for higher learning. The events, which took place during his sojourn at Kanchi, inspired him to establish a kingdom. According to Chandravalli inscription, his sway extended as far as Chitradurga. Kakustha Varma is by far the greatest king of this dynasty. During the long period of his rule starting from 420 A.D., the kingdom reached the peak of its glory. The sovereignty of the Kadambas came to an end in about 540 A.D. when Pulkeshi II subdued them.

    The Chalukyas of Badami conquered Banavasi and handed over the

    administration of Banavasimandala to the Alupas of Mangalore. In about 753 A.D., the Rashtrakutas over threw the Chalukyas and Rajaditya was appointed as the governor of Banavasi province. The Chalukyas of Kalyan overtook the Rashtrakutas during this period; Banavasi was an important seat of administration and the headquarters of the governor. Vikramaditya VI was the Governor of Banavasi province for quite some time. In fact he used this position to ascend the throne of Kalyan. The next important dynasty, which ruled a large part of this district, is that of Yadavas of Devagiri. During this period, the Kadambas of Hanagal who had virtually been recognised as the successors of the Kadambas of Banavasi controlled the eastern tracts while their counterparts on the west namely the Goa Kadambas held sway over Ankola and Karwar areas as these were part of Konkan 900. Another branch of Kadambas known after Chandavara administered the region of Kumta and Honavar. The Hoysalas of Dwarasamudra tried to establish their supremacy over this district during this period when in 1119 A.D. Vishnuvardhana conquered Hanagal and subdued the Kadambas. However, shortly thereafter, Vikramaditya VI recaptured Hanagal and ensured the subjugation of the Kadambas to the Chalukya throne. Vishnuvardhana once again took Banavasi in 1140-1141 A.D. The fight for supremacy between Hoysalas and the Chalukyas continued in this region upto 1300 A.D. With the fall of Yadavas of Devgiri and the Hoysalas this district came under the supremacy of Delhi Empire. Honavar rose into prominence as the seat of a governor during this period.

    The district was also greatly affected by the emergence of the Bahamani kingdom, especially its offshoot the Bijapur Sultanate on the one hand and the founding of the Vijayanagara Empire on the other. The Portuguese too added their influence on the coastal part and left their mark on the political and administrative set up.

    In 1347, Marapa of Vijayanagara invaded Banavasi and paid a visit to Gokarna the holy place of pilgrimage. Thereafter, Banavasi and the surrounding areas began to be administered from Chandragutti. A little later Banavasi became the headquarters under the charge of Madhava Mantri, who is said to have conquered northwestern parts of this district from Goa Kadamba. In the initial stages the Saluvas of Gerusoppa and Haduvalli resisted the supremacy of Vijayanagara. Their resistance could not last long and they too became the feudatories of the Vijayanagara Empire. For about four centuries the Saluvas of Gerusoppa exercised control over the fertile tracts on either side of the river Sharavati. Shivappa Nayaka of Keladi captured Channabhairadevi of the Haduvalli family in 1608 A.D. The other important dynasties of local chiefs are those of Bilgi and Sonda. The Bilgi Odeyas had their capital at Insur in Siddapur taluk initially and ruled the areas in the present day taluks of Siddapur and Sagar. Later the capital was shifted to Bilgi, which was fortified by Chante Odeya. He also conquered Bedkani and Kondli. Sonda Nayakas had their capital at Sonda in Sirsi taluk and were prominent during the latter half of the Vijayanagara period. They patronised Banavasi and its Madhukeshvara temple. The decline of Vijayanagara Empire led the Nayakas of Keladi to take charge of the district, who continued their cordial and friendly ties with the Portuguese. This helped the growth of overseas trade and made the district prosper. The Portuguese were allowed to establish factories and churches at Mirjan, Chandavar, Honavar and Bhatkal in 1678. The British too made their presence felt by establishing factories at Kanvar and Bhatkal.

    In 1675, Shivaji occupied the territory from Karwar to Gangavadi. In 1763, Hyder Ali annexed the district to Mysore kingdom. His son Tipu Sultan strengthened the forts and retained full control over the district till he fell fighting the British in 1799. Thereafter the district came under the administrative control of the British. The district was in forefront in the freedom struggle. In 1900-1901 there were some anti-British riots, which were soon put down. In 1930-1931, there was an uprising, which was quelled followed by Forest-Satyagraha, Salt Satyagraha and the no-tax campaign.

    The district became a part of Madras Presidency under the British rule along with Kundapur taluk in the south and had a separate collectorate for more than a decade. From 1817 to 1862 it formed part of the composite Canara district. Initially there were seven taluks namely Kundapur, Honavar, Ankola, Bilgi, Banavasi, Sonda and Supa. However, there were many changes in the organisation of the district into taluks. In 1862, the northern division of the then Canara district excluding Kundapur taluk was transferred to Bombay

  • 11

    Presidency. The headquarters of the district was shifted to Karwar from Honavar. The district comprised of the eight taluks of Ankola, Honavar, Karwar, Kumta, Haliyal, Siddapur, Sirsi and Yellapur besides the three sub-taluks or Petha was elevated to the status of a taluk. With the reorganisation of the state in 1956 the district became a part of the Karnataka State in 1960, the sub-taluks of Bhatkal and Supa were upgraded into full-fledged taluks bringing it to a total of eleven. For administrative convenience the eleven taluks are grouped into three revenue sub-divisions namely Karwar sub-division with three taluks namely Karwar, Supa and Haliyal; Kumta sub-division with Kumta, Honavar, Bhatkal and Ankola; Sirsi sub-division with Sirsi, Siddapur, Mundagod and Yellandur taluks. A new sub-division namely Bhatkal was constituted bifurcating Kumta Sub-division comprising the taluks of Honavar and Bhatkal vide Government of Karnataka Notification No. RD.13.LRD.93 dated 19.3.94. The district itself comes under the jurisdiction of Belgaum Division.

    Brief Note on Primary Census Abstract

    Introduction:

    The Indian Census has the reputation of being one of the best in the world. The first Census in India was conducted in the year 1872. This was conducted at different points of time in different parts of the country. In 1881 a Census was taken for the entire country simultaneously. Since then, Census has been conducted every ten years, without a break. Thus, the Census of India 2011 was the fifteenth in this unbroken series since 1872, the seventh after independence and the second census of the third millennium and twenty first century. The census has been uninterruptedly continued despite of several adversities like wars, epidemics, natural calamities, political unrest, etc.

    The Census of India is conducted under the provisions of the Census Act 1948 and the Census Rules, 1990. In Censuses until 1931, a synchronous de-facto method was adopted wherein the Census was conducted throughout the country on a single night. This being a very costly affair and involved the deployment of very large force at one point of time was given up in 1941. Since then the same methodology has been followed in all the Censuses. It is a gigantic operation and considered to be the single largest, complex, peace time administrative exercise in the world.

    The Census Operation in India is carried out in two distinct but inter connected phases - the House listing and Housing Census followed by the Population Enumeration. During the first phase of Census 2011 i.e., House listing and Housing Census, the buildings, census houses and households were identified and systematically listed in the House Listing and Housing Census Schedule during the period April to September, 2010 in different States/Union Territories. Apart from listing of houses, some useful data on the amenities available to the households was also collected for assessing condition of human settlements, housing deficits etc.

    Censuses prior to Census 2001 had the system of collecting the information through Individual Slip which was a key schedule for every individual. The information collected through slip was then compiled for a household. Some information was also collected in addition to this for the household. During 2001 Census a comprehensive Household Schedule was adopted replacing the individual slip concept. In 2011 Census also similar household schedule was used for canvassing. The scope of demographic, socio-economic parameters has been widened in every census.

    2. Population Enumeration - Census 2011: The field work of the second phase i.e. Population Enumeration was carried out during February-March, 2011. One of the essential features of Population Enumeration in the second phase was that each person was enumerated and her/his individual particulars were collected at a well-defined point of time.

    The Census moment and the reference date for the Census of India 2011 was 00:00 hours of 1st March, 2011. The enumeration was conducted from 9th February to

  • 19

    28th February, 2011 along with a revisional round from 1st March, 2011 to 5th March, 2011 synchronously all over the country except for few specific areas of the Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand states that remain snowbound in February. In these locations the population enumeration was done from 11th September, 2010 to 30th September, 2010 along with a revisional round from 1st October, 2010 to 5th October, 2010. The reference date for the census in snow bound non-synchronous areas of these states was 00.00 hours of the first day of October, 2010. In addition to the coverage during House listing & Housing Census, the enumeration of the Houseless population was carried out on the night of 28th February, 2011, as has been the usual practice. For the purpose of Census, certain areas where the access of the civilian enumerators was not permissible due to security reasons termed as Special Charges such as the Defence and strictly Military/Para-Military areas, including operational areas were also covered. Such areas were not covered during the House listing & Housing Census. In addition to the defence/para-military areas, Special Charges also included certain factory areas, certain colonies, sensitive areas, scientific establishments, etc. These also formed Special Charges as these were not accessible by the usual census enumerator.

    3. Quality Assurance:A Task Force for Quality Assurance (TFQA) functioned under the chairmanship

    of the RG & CCI. Experienced officers of the different divisions of the organization i.e. Heads and senior officers of the Census Division, Data Processing Division, Map Division, Demography Division and Social Studies Division comprised the TFQA. The Directors of Census Operations were co-opted as members whenever the TFQA discussed the data for their States/Union territories. The main objective of constituting the TFQA was to subject the data to stringent validation checks and ensure its quality before release as it was expedient to be satisfied itself about the quality of data before putting the same in public domain.

    The Directors and their senior officers were involved at all levels with respect to the quality and the coverage of their states/Uts. The TFQA intensively scrutinized coverage and content parameters including edit and imputation logic. The most important aspect of the data quality was to ensure complete coverage of all geographical areas especially for the population enumeration phase where the data is disseminated right up to the village level in the rural areas and the ward level in the urban areas. Thus ensuring the complete coverage and correct geographical linkage of each enumeration block was one of the major planks of the quality control, especially for small area population statistics. The content was scrutinized mainly through the process of internal consistency, comparison with similar data in the past and also through validation with likewise data if available, from external sources. Quite often the local knowledge and perception was looked at to understand both the existing and the new emerging trends of population distribution and characteristics. A very comprehensive check and edit mechanism was put in place to objectively examine the preliminary Census 2011 Population Enumeration results and finally clear them for use. The population data was cleared only after the full possible satisfaction of the TFQA.

    The entire work relating to the data validation and scrutiny was completed by all the States/Union territories under the overall supervision and monitoring of the Census Division of the Office of the Registrar General, India with active cooperation and support of the Social Studies Division, Data Processing Division, Data Dissemination Division and Map Division.

    4. Primary Census Abstract:

    The Primary Census Abstract which is important publication of 2011 Census gives basic information on Area, Total Number of Households, Total Population, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes Population, Population in the age group 0-6, Literates, Main Workers and Marginal Workers classified by the four broad industrial categories, namely, (i) Cultivators, (ii) Agricultural Labourers, (iii) Household Industry Workers, and (iv) Other Workers and also Non-Workers. The characteristics of the Total Population include Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Institutional and Houseless Population and are presented by sex and rural-urban residence.

    In 1981 census main workers were presented into four categories. As regards 1991 Census, the nine-fold industrial classification of main workers has been given in the Primary Census Abstract. One of the important features of the Primary Census Abstract of 1991 Census was the presentation of population of the age group 0-6 which is continued in 2001 and 2011 Census. All the children of age 6 years or less have been treated as illiterate even if the child is going to a school and may have picked up reading and writing. This will help the data users in better analysis and understanding of the literacy data as the literacy rate is calculated with 7 years and above population and it is referred as effective literacy rate. In 2001 and 2011 census four categories of main workers have been given in the Primary Census Abstract.

    5. Level of Presentation of PCA data in District Census Handbooks:

    The format of Primary Census Abstract (PCA) adopted in the DCHB of 2001 Census has been continued for 2011 Census as the data on four categories of works have been presented similar to 2001 census. The Primary Census Abstract data in different PCAs are presented at different levels. The level of presentation of Primary Census Abstracts in DCHB is as under: 1. District Primary Census Abstract -District/C.D. Block/Town.2. Primary Census Abstract for Scheduled Castes- District/C.D. Block/Town.3. Primary Census Abstract for Scheduled Tribes -District/C.D. Block/Town.4. Village Primary Census Abstract -C.D. Block/Village wise.5. Urban Primary Census Abstract- Town/Ward level.

    The PCA Data for villages was presented C.D. Block wise for the first time in 1991 Census. This practice is continued in 2001 and 2011 Census. The term Total Population includes the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes, the Institutional and the Houseless populations. An appendix to District Primary Census Abstract has also been furnished showing urban enumeration block-wise particulars on Total Population, the Scheduled Castes Population and the Scheduled Tribes Population for each town.

    6. Area Figures: The area figures supplied by local revenue authorities of the district in respect of tahsils, Police Stations and by the local bodies in respect of towns are given in square kilometers. The area figures of the villages supplied by the Tahsildars in acres have been converted and shown in hectares. The area figures of the C.D. Block are the total of the village areas coming under each C.D. Block. The area figures for the district are the same as adopted by the Surveyor General of India to maintain uniformity at the national level.
