The Madras Chapter of Indian Geotechnical Society was inaugurated on 22-4-1988 by Dr. S. Panchanatham. Dr. V.V.S. Rao was the Chairman and Dr. A.Sargunan was the Secretary. The first National Seminar on "Geotechnical Challenges in Civil Engineering" was organized in June 1988. The Annual Indian Geotechnical Conference IGC 1983 was earlier organized at IIT Madras in December 1983. The name is now changed to IGS Chennai Chapter after the city was renamed as Chennai.
