History of SICE, Chennai

With increase industrialization under the five year plan the demand for the services of persons with specified skills in commercial subjects has increased. To meet the demand, the government sought to increase the facilities for educating and training young men and women in commercial subjects. An all India Council of technical education was set up by the government of India for the promotion and coordination of technical education. This council established the all India boards of technical studies for various technical subjects.

Under the chairmanship of Dr.V.K.R.V.Rao a committee was appointed to study the position of commerce education in India in all its aspects and to suggest measures for its reorganization and improvement the committee recommended the formulation of the diploma course in commercial practice to supplant the then existing diploma and certificate courses in the state.

A special committee was set up by the All India Board of Technical Studies in Commerce to draw up a scheme for the diploma in commercial practice. The syllabus prepared by it was approved by the Government of Tamilnadu and this institute was established under G.O. MS.NO.1727 Education, dated the 18th September 1965. It came into being in October 1965 with an intake of 30 students. Women candidates are also admitted to the DCP course since 1984-85. The permitted intake now is 75.

AICTE in the letter No.F NO.P-32/2002/7127 DT.2-7-2002 approved a Diploma in Modern Office Practice with an intake of 75 instead of diploma in commercial practice with same syllabus with Three years period of duration.
