Sindhis are the natives of the Sindh province of Pakistan. They are an Indo-Aryan ethnolinguistic group. The name Sindhi is derived from the Sanskrit 'Sindhu' which means "river" or "sea body" - the original name of river Indus. In the colonial period, Sindhis migrated to different parts of the world.

They relocated to India during partition. Losing their homeland and sustaining struggles, with perseverance and determination they established themselves as successful people in the Indian society. They possess a rich culture and civilization.


The Sindhi Educational Society (Madras) was established in 1974. With a zealous commitment to the cause of education, it has been administering three schools and a college. The esteemed Seth P.D. Hinduja Model Senior Secondary School (CBSE), Chennai, was started in 1975–76. Following the legacy, Sindhi Model Matriculation Higher Secondary School, affiliated to the State Board, was started in 2011–2012 and the Sindhi Model School of Excellence (CBSE) in the academic year 2019–20.

Sindhi College was established during the academic year 1991–92 as a self-financing college affiliated to the University of Madras. The college was granted permanent affiliation from the academic year 2002–2003 onwards.

Sindhi College was founded under the mercurial stewardship of Shri Keshavdas J. Jashani. His noble vision was to develop the college into a citadel of higher education and fulfill a lofty mission, empowering the first-generation learners with holistic education and skills.

Sindhi College was formally inaugurated by Justice A.S Anand, the then Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, on 17th August 1991. The college is located in 15.8 acres of sprawling, lush green pastoral atmosphere on Poonamallee High Road. Far from the maddening crowd, the college is an ideal locale for the intellectual pursuits of young minds.

Hon. Secretaries - Shri Shyam R Ahuja and Shri Nandalal Pokardas were the pillars of strength of the institution. Shri Lachmandas Khushiram and J.C. Prakash streamlined the administrative matters of the college. The first principal, Dr.Veeraraghavan, was a master craftsman with a reservoir of experience manoeuvred the college to enviable heights.
