Nadar Mahajana Sangam S. Vellaichamy Nadar College was started in 1965 by the “Nadar Mahajana Sangam” with the encouragement of the generous donations received from philanthropic members of the Sangam. Kodaivallal, Kalvithanthai Thiru.S.Vellaichamy Nadar of Virudhunagar has contributed largely for the creation of this institution by his enthusiastic assistance in all ways. In order to perpetuate his pleasant memory, this College has been named after him.

College Logo and Motto
Lotus flowers, palm-leaf manuscripts, books, mountain and a kuthuvilakku are found in our emblem. Mountain symbolizes eminence, stability, prominence and greatness. The two mountains at the background suggest that our college plays a prominent role in providing quality education to students in and around Madurai city. Moreover, they also suggest that our college is the ground where students are trained to reach the pinnacle of glory in the life.
A kuthuvilakku, an oil-lamp with a pedestal occupies the prominent place in our emblem. Light symbolizes knowledge which dispels ignorance and darkness. Kuthuvilakku is lit on auspicious occasions and it has religious significance too. It suggests imparting education as a sacred activity.
To educate means to train the mind and shape of the character of the pupils. The wisdom of the past, represented by two bundles of palm-leaf manuscripts, plays a major role in deepening knowledge and shaping the character of the students. The two books represent the latest in the world of knowledge. A combination of what is essentially good in the past and the present is what this institution strives to offer to the students. The college encourage the students to develop deep deeper still, till they strike the fountain head of wisdom. It is endorsed by the verse “கற்றனைத் தூறும் அறிவு”. The more you learn, the freer streams of wisdom flow.
Lotus is the queen of flowers. Rightly the Goddess of learning has chosen it as her throne. The lotus flowers in our emblem symbolise our hope that our students, through quality education, will definitely achieve greatness and reach greater heights in future.
