Mudugar-Kurumbar Research Centre is managed by tribal people and non-tribal researchers. A video-camera which is hired on a monthly basis is used by the fieldworkers for daily documentation. Research is done by the fieldworkers and interns from colleges. From the interested applicants, six from Madras Christian College were selected as interns. They were divided into groups of three. The first group led by Kiran Tom Sajan (Final Year Mass Communication, Madras Christian College) reached Attappady on 24 April, 2010. They did an extensive research for twelve days. Their focus of research was "The dress-patterns of Mudugar." They are now in the process of making a video-documentary on the above-mentioned research topic.
