Appreciate the excellent work done by School Education Department & Tamil Nadu Text Book Corporation to make the text books online. Change in the pattern for elementary classes is another one that we should really appreciate. Keep it up.....expecting more like this in our school education.

It�s really a nice initiative. The web page looks user friendly. It will make the current generation students life easy.


Your textbook online website is very nice. It will be very helpful for everybody especially for the NRIs who want to teach their kids. Nice job. Keep up your good work.

It is commendable. Brilliant Idea. It would be useful to many students and also would provide basic knowledge on the Various subjects to people who would like to learn.

It�s a very good initiative. This will help all tamilians/Indians living outside the country to teach their children Indian education. Also with so many NRI�s returning back to India this gives them a chance to prepare their kids to Indian education , so that its easy for them for the transition.


I live in USA and have seen your web based school study materials. I would like to say it�s a wonderful initiative. I am a mechanical engineer, sometimes I use to get doubt about my basic maths and not able to get answer but based on this website I can clarify very easily because I can see both language in my mother tongue Tamil as well in English. Thanks and Great Work..!

I am sending this mail from Lagos, Nigeria. I am regularly visiting this site and go thorough the each and every subjects in all standards. I can study the materials in Tamil, Tamil Ilakkanam, English grammar, Mathematics, Science and train my children who are in Chennai through net (chatting) on Saturday/Sunday. Even those who are not having First language as Tamil in Nigeria, are giving training to their children to develop Tamil skills though these lessons. Convey my best regards and appreciation to all the team members participated to bring this successfully.

S. Jagadeesan, Nigeria

This is really a big step on the education. This is in fact an another feather on the cap for the Government of Tamil Nadu, particularly the School Education Department. I have gone through this website and proves to be of immense use to the School children. This indeed proves how the technology impacts our day to day life and I most welcome this initiative. We the people of Tamil Nadu expect more technology based governance on all other department as like this School Education Department. Keep it up!!

இந்த செயல் வரவேற்கத்தக்கது . உள்ளூர் மாணவர்களுக்கு மட்டும் இல்லாமல் எங்களை போல அயல் நாடு மனவகளுக்கும் படித்த படங்களை புரட்ட நல்ல வழி . இந்த முயற்சி எந்த சூழ்நிலையிலும் தொடர்ந்து செயல்பட வேண்டிக்கொள்கிறேன் .

This is an excellent initiative from the Tamil Nadu government. Special thanks and wishes for the professors, officers and staffs who had their hard work in making this project. This helps not only to the students and the respective family members in Tamil Nadu, but to people all over the world. Now, I can use this tool to clear my sister's questions and teach her in the respective subjects, who is in Chennai. Once again thanks for the effort and expect more like this in the future.
M.Thanigaivel, USA
The Website is very user friendly and I found all the books of all standards in a categorized view. It will be more helpful to many students. The question paper collections and blue prints will be more useful preparing for public examinations. This will be an online guide to many of our Tamil Nadu students. Thanks for this site.

நன்றி..! தமிழக அரசுக்கு நன்றி..! மிகவும் பயனுள்ளதாக இருந்தது. வேலை பார்த்துக்கொண்டு படிப்பவர்களுக்கு இது மிகவும் பயனளிக்கக்கூடியது. கனினியில் வேலை செய்து கொண்டே பாடங்களை படிக்கலாம். நன்றி..!  


I  am using your website for preparing for civil services examination. I found it very useful and the response from your servers flawless, especially the search in English Titles (from Std. 6  to  Std.  12) is very much useful as the results obtained are accurate. I hope  educational departments from other state will also emulate your model. Your e-book site will definitely bring a sea change in Tamil Nadu education system.  My sincere thanks to all the team members who are hosting the site.

Dara Ravi Babu, Bangalore

AMAZING� that is the only word which came to my mind when my colleague passed on the URL to have a look ! During my schooling days, we used to spend lots of time searching for books in various shops � it was real tough. TN Government keeping astride with the technological advancement is sure a boon to many. Congratulations to the team, for the excellent efforts in bringing out such a wonderful creation.


This is the first of the initiative ever done by any government of publishing all text books online from standard 1 thru 12. Kudos to TN government. Come up with more such initiatives that benefit the people.

இவ்வலைத் தளத்தின் பயன் இந்திய நாட்டில் உள்ளவரைக்கால் வெளி நாட்டில் வாழும் எங்களைப் போன்ற தமிழ் நெஞ்சங்களுக்கு இன்றியமையாதது எனில் மிகையில்லை. அற்புதமான பணியிது. வலையில் அனைவருக்குமாய் வேண்டி வெளிக்கொணர்ந்த அத்துணை தமிழ் நெஞ்சங்களுக்கும் எமது சிரம் தாழ்த்திய நன்றிகள்.  வாழ்க தமிழ், வெல்க அதன் வீரியம் இவ்வையகமனைத்தும்.

பால. நாகராசன்

It is really a wonderful resource. People like me who live outside India wants to teach my kids Tamil and Maths. I was having difficulties in getting the books from Tamilnadu. Now I don't have that problem. It is really a "Varaprasadham". Now I am teaching my kids Tamil with out any trouble. Good Work. Keep it up.


It is very helpful to me for studying the  first year B.Tech course in Abroad.

K. Lakshmana Murthy, Dubai

Amazing. This shows that we are not left behind in tapping the internet. May be we are ahead..! I wish this gets across to all students in Tamil Nadu.

I'm an electronics engineer, currently working in USA. At times I feel that I missed to understand some concepts that I learned during my school ages. I was asking my friends to sent the school books from India. After seeing this site I felt really very happy. I really thank again for this valuable idea.

The department of education has done such a wonderful task of sharing these subjects not only in Tamil, in all neighboring languages which shows TN Govt's magnanimity in respecting the other languages. Even, I know many of non-Tamils use this site to teach their children in their mother tongue.

Senthilkumar. K

It is excellent work. Very very  helpful to the students. Even if they couldn�t get the books in the right time of the school opening, they could use this facility. Really I appreciate this work.

Balamurugan, Portugal.

It�s a very very wonderful and useful website which you made for Tamil Nadu public. I am very much happy to see these textbooks in online and it�s took back my olden school life as well as I updated my basic knowledge again successfully. I would have to thankful to our Tamil Nadu Government, School Education Department, Tamil Nadu Text Book Corporation & National Informatics Centre, Chennai.

Uthayasingh K, Saudi Arabia

Tamil Nadu makes one more achievement ahead of others in putting online all the text books. It is because of hard work and understanding the importance of internet by Tamil teaching community. It is very useful for one and all including American living Indians.

Jayakumar Balusamy, Seattle, USA

I am currently pursuing my Master of Science in USA. I was given a few assignments which needed me to apply 11th and 12th standard maths.To my great surprise I found Tamil Nadu Board Book site. I downloaded all my 10th,11th and 12th maths books. I don't have words to praise you people. You guys simply rock. Keep up your awesome work.

Bharath, USA
I really appreciate the work done by Tamil Nadu government school education department for taking this initiative. It would be really helpful for students who cannot get the books in market due to unavailability. Moreover, now the government has initiated to help the students, now as a citizen, we need to think, how to take this forward for other students who cannot afford to buy books for their education. Request all to take printout and share with them. I have decided, I will distribute one set to one student per year. Let's put our hands together and do something for our society.

KumaraGuru Kumar

Hats off to Government of Tamil nadu, hope this system will be provided by other State Governments of India in future soon. It�s not only good for students from 1 to 12 th but also helpful for Engineers, Teachers and Other Professionals who can clear their own fundamental doubts with couple of mouse strokes.And we are eagerly waiting for brand new systems from Tamil nadu Government to make a new Renaissance. Jai Ho.

பள்ளி மாணக்கர் மட்டும் அல்லாது அனைவரும் பயன்படுத்த மற்றும் குறிப்பு எடுக்க ஏதுவாக உள்ளது. போட்டி தேர்வுகள் மற்றும் ஆராய்ச்சி பணிகளுக்கு தேவையான அடிப்படை பாடங்கள் இந்த வடிவில் தந்தமைக்கு கல்வித்துறையை மிகவும் பாராட்டலாம்.  நன்றிகள் பல.

We are extremely thankful to Tamil Nadu Government for introducing online Text Books. This is very useful for blind students in taking Braille printouts using the text and especially the audio option available in English helps my visually disabled child to listen & learn his lessons effortlessly.

It�s a very good initiative by the Education Department. All these books, with elaborate content, yet in simple text, will be of great help to the online community. Much delighted to go through the books... Kudos..!

Thanks to our TN government for their good steps to make content publicly available. Thanks and regards,

This is really exemplary work done by Tamil Nadu Education department. Every state of India should display such types of materials for the benefit of the people of the state. I liked the composition of books of all the subjects. Congratulation for this work and I really appreciate your endeavours.

Dr. Y.C. Zala, Anand, Gujarat

Excellent work� Great initiative. Very organized and simple layouts. Way to go forward!! 


I would like to really appreciate the efforts of School Education Dept and Tamil Nadu text book corporation of Govt. of Tamil Nadu to display the books online. I passed out 12th in 2006, when the new syllabus was introduced. I am studying abroad now and really wanted my 11 and 12 th text books, as they are pure basics of Engineering and Science. As I found the books online, I was very happy. The course material is very good. I did not realize it when I was studying in school, but after seeing the real world, everything I studied in school applies.

I am the Principal of British Columbia International School (Bangkok) .  I have downloaded your text books a while ago and have been reviewing what you have done.  I was involved many years ago as one of the authors of the GINN Journeys Reading Series (28 books).  I have to say that you have done an outstanding job.  We are looking at marrying the text of your courses with the Kahn academy videos and put the material into a moodle course form. Thank you for your outstanding work.  Your work stands as an inspiration to the rest of us to get going and make education better and better through the resources that we create. Thank you.

I am really thankful for your sincere effort for maintaining this website. It will be useful not just for current students (who can access their books) but also for everyone who want to brush up their basics. I studied in Tamil medium and still some basics will come to my mind in Tamil only, so I can refer here and think more about the concepts deeply then. Thank you so much!

Ananda Ayyappan J V, Ph D Student, Heinrich-Heine-University, Denmark

I thought, Private Enterprises are in the fore front and better in all ways and means of equipping themselves in their respective software technology; but, it proves that, now a days, Govt. agencies are pioneer in this field competing the rivals of any body for that matter. I wish, this enthusiasm is getting continued unabated.

K Rajendiran

Gratefulness running down on my fingers when I type this. I sincerly thank your efforts to share one of the best education system for free of cost in easily accessable way. Many shall rejoice this material like me. I feel sense of proud and elation for you fellow kind beings.


Great work by Tamil Nadu Government Education Board. Feels good to see the government getting updated with the technologies up the line. Keep it up.

Sutharsni Karmegam

This Website is very good for the brilliant students who can download and study future standards (Classes) text books being in the lower standards itself. No need to wait till they get promote to next standard. This will help them it getting good ranks in IIT and other competitive exams by early preparation. Parents can teach their kids early itself so that kids will have less pressure and more time in preparing well for competitive exams immediately after 10+2. If we find kids are missing some basics which could have learned in lower classes, then we can quickly download lower class books and teach them those concepts. No need to go and search in book shops for lower class text books. I recommend every educated house must have all these set of books in their shelves or in their tabs. By using like this innovative thoughts our country can become No.1 in the world soon. I hope all other state Govts should follow the same to help the students and parents. Thanks a lot to all who participated in this Holy work.

For a Super power - India, children & youth are the driving forces. They have to frequent to libraries. Now it has come handy by this online service. I can motivate my children (studying in Govt. Elementary School) by showing the Scanned images of the book, ultimately to encourage the HABIT OF READING. Thanks a lot for the great & magnificent initiative.


What a wonderful idea of Tamil nadu government!  I can read it in my mobile phone when I am not in home.

I am Zahid Ali from Lahore. When I visited your site for first time I amazed that this site contain textbooks in Urdu also and happier to see that you also prefer your own local languages. I downloaded books in Urdu and English for study. Nice work. Keep it up.

I owe my gratitude to the entire team of Board of Mathematics Teachers who has  helped me and my student community to achieve the top ranks in 10th, 11th and 12th classes. I can say that books are wonderfully written as I found them self-explanatory. My hearty thanks for the team and the Tamil Nadu Government for doing such a nice service to teacher and students-community.

- M V Appa Rao, Retired Teacher, Hyderabad

Your online textbook site is very user friendly and I was so delighted that I couldn't stop myself to give a positive feedback to your site. Frankly speaking, I belonged to CBSE board (Now I am working in an IT firm) but found those books some what difficult to understand (at that time). In Tamil Nadu board books, I find effort has been taken by writer to avoid a lot of confusions and making the matter in easily presentable manner.  Good luck to Tamil Nadu board and keep on uploading your books in the same manner so we can take benefit !!

- Saurabh

As a student, I really appreciate this work of free e-books. My feeling of respect about TN state has much increased now. thanks a lot.
