BENTINCK BUILDING

[Old Collectorate Building]

                     

     The old Collectorate Building in the present campus at Rajaji Salai, Chennai-1 was constructed in the year 1793. It was named after Lord Bentinck, the Governor of Madras Presidency. In this building, Supreme Court as well as High Court of Madras Presidency functioned up to the end of 19th century.   After that, Collectorate was housed in the building. Lord William Bentinck was Governor of Madras Presidency up to 1807 and took over the reign of administration at their head quarters in Calcutta as Governor General. It is during his tenure that many of the far reaching welfare policies were framed. English education, education to women, Sati abolition Act,  Ryotwari system in land revenue etc., were all introduced.         

 

SINGARAVELAR MALIGAI

[New Collectorate Building]

     When this old premises was demolished and new one was constructed, it was named after another renowned personality namely, Thiru M.Singaravelar, first advocate from fisherman community. He was one of the founding members of Triplicane Urban Co-operative Society(T.U.C.S) . He worked for the upliftment of poor and downtrodden.

Thus, the Collectorate buildings, both old and new ones have been named after two towering personalities. However,  a monument which was constructed in memory of Lord Cornwallis in the campus of old building has been retained and one can see it even today.
