In fact, the town has the highest literacy rate as compared to other union territories of India. The tribal communities of the territory remain divided into various categories; these include Irulars, Kattunaickens, Malaikuravars, Yerkulas or the Kurumans. Those who wish to see these tribal people as they go about performing their daily activities should plan to visit Karaikal and Yanam.

These tribal people inhabit different villages that fall under different municipal zones in Puducherry or Pondicherry.
