It had taken, decades for the College to take shape. At the behest of Sir Thomas Munro a Committee of public instruction was formed in 1826. In 1836 the duties of the Committee of public instruction was taken over by "The Committee of Native Education." The plan drawn up by the Committee did not commend themselves to Lord Elphinstone who in turn proposed nineteen resolutions which were passed unanimously. The gist of the resolutions was as follows:

"That it is expedient that a Central Collegiate Institution or University should be established at Madras".

"The Madras University to consist of two principal departments, a College for the Higher Branches of Literature, Philosophy and Science, and a High School for the Cultivation of English Literature and of the vernacular languages of India and the elementary departments of Philosophy and Science".

The College was granted autonomy in 1987. It has since been possible for the College to attempt limited curricular and examination reforms to make education meaningful and uptodate. Continuous assessment of student's performance during the semester and the semester - end examinations from the basis for the award of degrees. Among the benefits of autonomy are greater student - teacher interaction and a constant review, revision and updating of academic programmes. However, the Degrees continue to be awarded by the University of Madras. The Parent Teacher Association has been functioning for the welfare of the students. The College has been Accredited with Four Stars by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council. These details are retrieved from
