Madras State

Madras State

Madras State was the former name of the present day state of Tamil Nadu, India. When India became independent in 1947, Madras Presidency, a province of British India, was reconstituted as Madras State, consisting of Tamil Nadu and parts of present day Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala.

It was subsequently split up along linguistic lines in 1953. Under the States Reorganisation Act, 1956, the States of Kerala and Mysore were carved out of the Madras state. In August 1968, Madras State was renamed as Tamil Nadu.
