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.[2]


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 R. N. Ravi is the governor and M. K. Stalin is the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.[3][4] Munishwar Nath Bhandari is the acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court.[5][6] The chief secretary is V. Irai Anbu, IAS .[7]
