After retirement, he was Chairman of the State Official Languages (Legislative) Commission, of the Expert Committee to promote translation of foreign classics into Tamil and vice-versa. As the Chief of the judicial service in Pondicherry for four years, he was responsible for the introduction of Indian legal system in the erstwhile French courts.
