     Only during the rule of the Muthamizharignar Kalaignar, people eagerly read and enjoyed the achievements of various departments through the Information and Public Relations Department of the Government of  Tamil Nadu. The task of the Information and Public Relations Department is to take all the public welfare schemes of the Government which are implemented by it, to the people through newspapers and various other media.  The Information and Public Relations Department functions as an incomparable and unparalleled arm of the Government, taking its purposeful announcements to the knowledge of the people, from the times the country was announced as a Republic, and even prior to it.

    Press Releases, Government Orders, press statements, welfare schemes and announcements of the Hon’ble Chief Minister are taken to the last man of the State by the Information and Public Relations Department through Newspapers and various other media, including social media, through its Information and Public Relations offices in various districts.

The Information and Public Relations Department is publicizing these schemes throughout the State.
