Government. Arts College for Men - Chennai Details

This 106 year old Institution affiliated to the University of Madras was actually started in the middle of the 18th century as a School by the Nawab of Arcot. It was a Madrasa, a school that taught Arabic and Persian. The Madrasa was located at Chepauk, Madras. The estate on which the school then stood was purchased at a cost of Rs. 1 lakh. The last Nawab of Karnatac, Gulam Gauz Khan Bahadur gave a donation of Rs.1000 per month from 1849. In 1855 the school came under Government control. At the All India Education Convention held in Madras in 1901 it was resolved to upgrade this Madrasa into a College. The College was started with the objective of accommodating Muslim students who could not get admitted in other city Colleges. (It still retains something of its old character in opening up collegiate education to those who would have been denied admission in other city colleges, especially the boys) Later in 1937, the first Principal of the Institution preferred to admit 25% non-Muslim students. This system continued till the College acquired its present status in the year 1948 as Government Arts College. Ever since, equal opportunity is extended to students of the entire community irrespective of religious denomination. In the year 1969, due to administrative reasons, the location was shifted to its present place.
