Laccadive Islands
Country name: Lakshadweep Islands - Laccadive Islands (smalest union terretoria of India)
The name of the archipelago literally translates as "hundred thousand islands" (laksha = "one hundred thousand", dweep = "island"). Until 1973, the island group was known by the anglicised name Laccadives (compare to Maldives and Suvadives) although the term Laccadives strictly only applies to central Lakshdweep with the northern Amindivi Islands and Minicoy to the south considered separate. This is reflected in the pre-1973 name of the union territory, Laccadive, Minicoy, and Amindivi Islands
Capital: Kavaratti
Location: Located in the Arabian Sea (between 8 - 12 13" north latitude and 71 -74 east longitude)
Area: 32,000 sq km
Climate: tropical monsoon
Terrain: It consists of twelve coral atolls, three coral reefs, five banks, and numerous islets that lie between 200300 km off the coast of Kerala.
Population: 60,595 (2001)
Economy: Lakshadweep's gross state domestic product for 2004 is estimated at $60 million at current prices. Because of its isolation and scenic beauty, Lakshadweep is emerging as a great tourist attraction for Indians. This brings in a good amount of revenue, which is likely to increase. Since such a small region cannot support industries, the government is actively promoting tourism as a means of income.
