The Government of Tamil Nadu is the governing authority for the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is seated at Fort St George, Chennai. The legislature of Tamil Nadu was bicameral until 1986, when it was replaced by a unicameral legislature, like most other states in India.[1]


The Governor is the constitutional head of state while the Chief Minister heads the council of ministers. The Chief Justice of the Madras High Court is the head of the judiciary.


Presently Banwarilal Purohit is the governor and Edappadi K. Palanisamy is the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.[2][3] Amreshwar Pratap Sahi is the current Chief Justice of Madras High Court.[4]

Administrative divisions

The state of Tamil Nadu has a population of 72,138,959 as per the 2011 Census[5] and covers an area of 130,058 km². The major administrative units of the state constitute 38districts, 76 revenue divisions, 220 taluks, 15 municipal corporations, 148 municipalities, 385 panchayat unions (blocks), 561 town panchayats and 12,524 village panchayats.[6][7]


The Tamil Nadu E-Governance Agency is the entity that facilitates e-governance efforts in Tamil Nadu. As part of the e-governance initiative, a large part of government records like land ownership records have been digitised. All major administrative offices like local governance bodies and various government departments have been computerised.[8][9]
