The Mela Tanarupi scale belongs to the group of South Indian scales because of the geographical location where it was born and its typical sound. If you are looking forward to improvise South Indian music, then the Mela Tanarupi scale can be an excellent choice.
The Mela Tanarupi scale is mainly used in Western music (Reggae, Jazz, blues, Pop, and many others) but has a very special quality, which is that it doesn't have a minor nor major third (and so it is said to belong to the group of 'ambigous;' scales). This quality makes the Mela Tanarupi be an excellent option when you want to play chord that do contain a third, like suspended chords.
