About Us

The common dream of a few enthusiastic ‘Malayalees’ living in Gandhidham locality in Gujarat to have an association where they could share their thoughts and come together led to the idea of a ‘Samajam’ during the early late ‘50s. It was a matter of time… in 1952, the Kutch Kerala Samajam was registered.

Our Samajam is affiliated to ‘Federation of Gujarat Malayalee Association (FEGMA) which is the nodal organization of various Malayalee Association in Gujarat that aims to project and present the ethnic diversity of Malayalees in Gujarat & our Samajam is also member of Non-Resident Keralites’ Affairs (NORKA) under the Government of Kerala to redress the grievances of Non-resident Keralities.

The Management of the Samajam is vested in an Executive Committee consisting of Five Office bearers viz. a President, a Vice – President, a Secretary, a Joint Secretary and a Treasurer and twelve Executive Committee members.

Our Membership shall be of only one category ie. 1. Life Membership.Any person who is a Malayalee by percentage or Language and not below eighteen years of age, residing in Gandhidham locality and subscribing to the basic principles and the rules & regulations of the Samajam are enrolled as Members on payment of the prescribed membership fee.

The main objective of establishing the Samajam was to build a common platform for the Malayalees irrespective of their alliance to religion or their economic or social status and look after the interest of the members as also to interact socially and culturally with the local population.
