The South Indian Vaaniar Educational Trust owes its birth to the far-sighted vision and vigorous initiative of late Hon’ble Justice Thiru.S.A.Ayyasami Chettiar, M.A., B.L., who raised donations from the generous-hearted and public-spirited members of the Vaaniar Community. He created the above charitable organization in 1960. The First Finance Minister of Independent India, Hon’ble Thiru.R.K.Shanmugham Chettiar was the Secretary of the SIVE Trust. The primary aim of the Trust has always been to promote education, an investment for national development through the available human resources. To this end, the Trust initially extended its financial assistance to the meritorious but needy students in the form of scholarships. This induced many of the youngsters of the Vaaniar Community to pursue higher studies in college. The message of the Trust becoming loud and clear more and more donors of the community came forward to offer their contributions to augment the resources of the Trust. The then Government of Tamil Nadu assigned to the Trust a site of 28 acres at a nominal cost. S.I.V.E.T. College came into being at Gowrivakkam in July 1966 in a modestly constructed but adequately equipped building.
