About Shrimati Indira Gandhi College, [SIGC] Thiruchirapalli
Shrimati Indira Gandhi College was founded in 1984 by that great educationist Vidys Seva Ratnam K. Santhanam, as the then secretary of National College Council, with the active support of President Y.Venkateshwara Dikshidhar.It has its origin in the long cherished desire of the National College Council to establish a college exclusively for girls, to overcome the woefully inadequate provision for the higher education of women, that existed in the town till the eighties, with no college for women having been started for the last three decades and many deserving and intelligent girls being denied the privilege of collegiate education. The college is nationally re-accredited at 'A' grade by NAAC and is affiliated to Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirapalli.
The credit for the miraculous growth of the college in the early years is due in no small measure to the dedication and hard work of the Founder Secretary K.Santhanam. For the first half a dozen years, he was engaged in finding Teachers, regulating admissions, providing infrastructure, getting New Affiliations, putting up New Blocks, corresponding with AICTE for starting the M.B.A and M.C.A programmes, getting permanent Affiliation from the University, UGC Recognition for the college and Accreditation by NAAC and he did all this single handed.
