History:

Puducherry became independent by virtue of a referendum on October 18, 1954. But the treaty of cession signed between the French and Indian governments was ratified by the French Parliament only on August 16, 1962. The referendum was taken on October 18, 1954, on whether to remain in the French regime or to merge with the Indian union.

As many 178 representatives participated in the referendum in which 170 voted in favour of a merger with India and 8 against it. The referendum was taken at Keezhoor near Villianur here and to commemorate the occasion a memorial was constructed at Keezhoor.
