Kakkanad is a region in the city of Kochi, and is the administrative headquarters of the district of Ernakulam. It has seen considerable development due to its proximity to Kochi.
The Cochin Special Economic Zone (CZEZ) is based in this region. It is a multi-product economic zone with a large diversity in industrial activity. It is the third-largest Special Economic Zone in the country and the second-largest IT industrial park in Kerala. This has helped in the development of the region by improving the road works and other local services like hospitals, ATMs, and shopping areas. Kerala’s largest waterpark is also located here.
Kakkanad is also the broadcasting hub of Kochi, with many television and radio stations having their offices, studios, and broadcasting centres here.
