The Malabar Coast was the name given historically to the area of southwestern India between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats and between modern Karnataka and Capr Comorin. Malabar District was an administrative division of Madras Presidency.

The civilians were knowledgeable about modern military developments. It is mentioned that Thomas Hervey Baber, who was a Collector in Malabar in 1805 managed to track down and kill the Pyche Rajah in the November of that year. He did this with his own Revenue Kolkars, using tactics almost identical to those used so successfully in Malaya and Borneo in the late 1950s. [1]
