  A Glorious Past of T.S. Chanakya
1927 withnessed a remarkable and epoch making year in the history of modern Indian shipping.

History tells us that India was a vast sea power in olden days. But in India there were no facilities to impart training to Indians to become merchant navy officers till 1927. Great visionary Sir P. S. sivaswamy Iyer’s strong advocacy for the cause resulted in acceptance of a resolution on 19th March1926 by the Central Government to commence Indian Mercantile Marine, Ministry of Commerce, accordingly acquired troopship Dufferin and the three year course for the first batch commenced on Dufferin on 5th December 1927 with 26 cadets. First cadet Ramdas Katari who was later to become the first Indian commander-in-chief of the Indian Navy belonged to this very batch.

T. S.  Dufferin was afloat for a period of 67 years of which 45 years were off Mazgaon pier having trained 2656 cadets. It is a matter of great pride that four chiefs of Naval Staff if Indian Navy, many admirals, four Nautical advisors and two chief surveyors with the Government of India had their training of ‘ Dufferin’ besides many senior executives and masters in various shipping companies.read more..

T. S. Rajendra was named after the King Rajendra Chola. T. S. Rajendra had been specifically designed and built as a modern training ship by Hindustan shipyard to train 250 cadets at a time as against 160 earlier.
T. S. Rajendra served illustriously for 21 years by not only training large number of cadets but also the saloon crew. Government of India decided with great forethough to set up a shore based academy for training of nautical cadets so that output could be substantially increased. The shore based academy christened T. S. Chanakya was inaugurated on 5th April 1993, the National Maritime Day. read more..
