UCMAS (India) Pvt. Ltd., was established in the year 1999 in the month of September. With its corporate office located at Anna Nagar, Chennai-600 040, U C MAS started its Indian operations. Bringing the Concept to India as a National Franchiser, U C MAS-INDIA took the responsibility of popularizing the concept in the entire country to benefit the children across all parts of it. Ever since the inception, the company grew steadily appointing franchises first in Chennai and slowly moved outside the city - in various district locations. After the first stage of growth within the state of Tamil Nadu, U C MAS - India pursued its efforts towards the vision it had set for itself, to establish centres in the other states of the country.
The current scenario depicts a fuller view of the network of U C MAS centres across most parts of the country. There are currently well performing U C MAS franchise centres in India, even in the B & C class cities, apart from the major cities, such as Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Pondicherry, Bangalore, Kochi, Trivandrum Hyderabad, Bhubaneshwar, Guwahati, Ranchi, Raipur, Indore, Patna, Lucknow, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Jaipur, Shimla, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Pune. While the States of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka & Pondicherry are being directly administered by U C MAS India Corporate office at Chennai, the other states are governed by the Master Franchisees appointed for the states.
