The Nair Community members, who were living in the Tristate Area back in the seventees felt the need for a Nair Association for those who have origin or connection by birth, marriage or otherwise with the Malayalee Nair community for the purpose of fostering friendship, co-operation and progress among its members and enhancing their religious, social and cultural life based in the traditional ways of life and values of the Malayalee Nair community.

At present the association had over 350 Nair families holding Life Time Membership.
