    INC Indian National Congress was founded in 1885 (Dec 28)and its first president is W.C.Bannerji. It will be surprising for u all that Mahatma Gandi was President of Congress only once that to on 1924 session!!! George Yule and William Wedderburn were 2 foreign nationals who were in that post(1888,1889 and 1910).

    Bengal Gazette 1780, Calcutta Started by James Augustua Hicky (irshman) first weekly,
    Indian Gazette 1787, Calcutta Henry Louis Vivian Derozio (associated with it),
    Madras Courier 1784, Madras, (first paper from Madras)
    Bombay Herald 1789,
    The Hindu was started as weekly in 1878 Madras (gs Aiyar,Viraraghavachari and subbarao pandit founders).

    Constitutional Development in India at a glance:
    Regulating Act of1773:
    1) Parliamentary control over the govt of the company,
    2) Subordination of Presidencies Bombay and Madras to Bengal,
    3) Governor of Bengal made Governor General ,
    4) Supreme Court was established in Fort William.

    * This act laid the foundation of a unitary type of govt in British India.
