dated April 29, 1955: TV Sundaram Iyengar dead

We regret to record the death of Mr. T.V. Sundaram Iyengar, founder of the TVS and Sons, well-known motor dealers and transport operators in the South, in the early hours of April 28 at his residence in Kodaikanal. He was 78 and is survived by his wife, four sons and three daughters. Mr. Sundaram Iyengar laid the foundation for the motor transport industry in South India when he first started a bus service in Madurai district in 1912. He established the T.V. Sundaram Iyengar and Sons Limited in 1923 which now operates a number of buses and lorries under the title of Southern Roadways Limited, besides many depots and service stations. During the last war, to meet the petrol scarcity, the TVS designed and produced the TVS Gas Plant. Mr. Sundaram Iyengar also started a factory for rubber retreading, besides two more concerns, the Madras Auto Service Ltd. and the Sundaram Motors Ltd., the former being the largest distributors of General Motors.
