Industrialist M.A.M. Ramaswamy disowns adopted son

Tue, Jun 09, 2015, 06:02 PM
Chennai, June 9 , 2015: Industrialist and former Rajya Sabha member M.A.M. Ramaswamy, 84, on Tuesday disowned his adopted son M.A.M.R. Muthiah.

Ramaswamy also declared that Muthiah should not perform any ceremonies or obsequies on his demise.

Ramaswamy said the adoption has been nullified as per the practice of the Chettiar community and steps are being taken to void the adoption on the legal side as well.

"I have disowned him and do not wish to call him my son. Whatever the law may be, he is no more my son. According to me he can be only S. Ayyappan (original name) and not M.A.M.R. Muthiah," Ramaswamy told the media here at his residence.

Ramaswamy said Ayyappan has not performed the annual rituals for his late wife Sigappi Achi which had affected him emotionally.

According to Ramaswamy, though a substantial part of his properties is with Ayyappan, whatever is remaining should go to two charitable trusts - Dr. M.A.M. Ramaswamy Chettiar of Chettinad Charitable Trust and Dr.M.A.M. Ramaswamy Chettiar Trust- in which Ayyappan will have no part to play or have a say.

"I have also written and registered a will that all the assets which may be left at the time of my death would go only to the said trusts and not to Ayyappan or M.A.M.R. Muthiah or any one claiming on his behalf or under him," Ramaswamy said.

An emotionally disturbed Ramaswamy against whom several cases have been filed by his adopted son said Ayyappan should not perform any ceremonies or obsequies on his demise.

The Ramaswamys did not have any biological children and hence adopted Ayyappan, natural son of R.M. Sekkappa Chettiar, in 1995 when he was around 26 years old and named him as M.A.M.R. Muthiah.
