Tiruchirappalli Diocesan Educational Society

Tiruchirapalli Diocesan Educational Society is a registered society of the Roman Catholic Diocese, formed by the Bishop of Tiruchirapalli to promote education from the primary to the university level for all sections of society, as a mission to empower the marginalized through the Distance Education offered by the universities and part time Education Programmes.

TDES identified the need to promote Indian traditional fine arts and to empower the artistes and the youth with academic qualification in these art forms. Eventually, TDES entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Directorate of Distance Education, Tamil University, Tanjavur in November 2014 for offering distance education programmes for Bharathanatyam and Music. This MOU has been renewed in 2017 for another three years.
