Incorporation and Bifurcation
The Pandiyan Roadways Corporation Ltd. ( presently Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation ( Madurai) Ltd, Madurai Region), came into existence from 17.01.1972 on account of nationalization of buses of the private operators as per the 1971 Act. The fleet of 346 buses along with the Depots and workmen were taken from M/s Southern Roadways Private Ltd, Madurai.
When the fleet strength was 1249, the Corporation was bifurcated as per G.O MS No.100 dated 29.04.1997 and the new Corporation commenced its operation in the name of
M/s Veeran Sundaralingam Transport Corporation Ltd. (presently TNSTC ( Madurai) Ltd, Virudhunagar Region), having its Head Quarters at Virudhunagar with 352 buses with effect from 01.05.97.
It was the last corporation to have been christened among various TNSTCs of that time. All the names of various Tamilnadu State Corporation undertakings were renamed to TNSTC of respective region when communal clash broke out after the naming of this new born corporation. With this the glory of name era gone.
