In 1836 the duties of the Committee of public instruction was taken over by "The Committee of Native Education." The plan drawn up by the Committee did not commend themselves to Lord Elphinstone who in turn proposed nineteen resolutions which were passed unanimously. "The Madras University to consist of two principal departments, a College for the Higher Branches of Literature, Philosophy and Science, and a High School for the Cultivation of English Literature and of the vernacular languages of India and the elementary departments of Philosophy and Science". On 22nd April 1852 the then Governor, Fort. St. George Sir Henry Pottinger, Constituted a body called the 'University Board' with a President and sixteen members. In the beginning of 1853, the institution entered upon the second epoch in its history. It underwent reorganisation and was developed downwards and upwards.
