India became a Region when India-Ceylon Region was divided into two on July 1st, 1974. The late Justice Ym. M. U. Isaac was the 1st Regional Director of India Region.
At the Regional Convention held at Kottayam in June 1980, it was decided to trifurcate the India Region as:
(1) West India Region, covering the entire Kerala,
(2) South India Region, covering the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and
(3) Central India Region, covering Andhra Pradesh and the entire North India.
The three new regions had their business meetings immediately after the trifurcation and elected their regional officers and council.
