In the year 1928, the local government approached Rajah Sir S. R. M. Annamalai Chettiar to handover all the institutions in order to set up a University. Rajah Sir S. R. M.

The most significant development is the enactment of the Annamalai University Act, 2013 (Tamil Nadu Act 20 of 2013), which has come into force from September 25, 2013, after obtaining the assent of His Excellency, the President of India.
