History of Chennai District

Corporation of ChennaiChennai is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Chennai is known as the “Detroit of India” for its automobile industry. It is the fourth-largest city and fourth-most populous metropolitan area in the country and 36th-largest urban area in the world.

The Chennai Metropolitan Area as recently as January 2015 has been ranked the fourth-largest economy in India and the third-highest GDP per capita. As a growing metropolitan city in a developing country, Chennai confronts substantial pollution and other logistical and socio-economic problems. Chennai has been selected as one of the 20 Indian cities to be developed as a smart city under PM Narendra Modi’s flagship Smart Cities Mission.

After India gained its independence in 1947, the city became the capital of Madras State, which was renamed as Tamil Nadu in 1969.The violent agitations of 1965 against the compulsory imposition of Hindi and in support of English in India in the state marked a major shift in the political dynamics of the city and eventually it had a big impact on the whole state. Because of madras and its people English exists now in India otherwise Hindi might have been made as solo language in India. On 17 July 1996, the city known as Madras was officially renamed Chennai, in line with what was then a nationwide trend to using less Anglicized names.

Chennai sometimes referred to as the “Gateway to South India,” is located on the south–eastern coast of India in the north–eastern part of Tamil Nadu on a flat coastal plain known as the Eastern Coastal Plains. Its average elevation is around 6.7 metres (22 ft), and its highest point is 60 m (200 ft).
