Furthermore it was stated that Thanjavur, Pudukkottai and Dindigul districts have been always the hub of coconut business. Now, it is lost.” Meanwhile Soundararajan also predicted an increase in coconut prices across the state. Further as per report due to cyclone Gaja many coconut trees were uprooted and had fallen down because of heavy wind.
