A conservative community of traders and financiers with traditions centuries old, the Chettiars` heyday was from the middle of the 19th Century to the 1950s.

The winds of Independence that blew community`s decline, but education has been responsible for a considerable resurgence since the 1970s, with many becoming professionals, business persons and industrialists in South India and in Several parts of the world.
