This constituency is reserved for Scheduled Castes (SC) candidates.

Assembly segments[edit]

The constituency in 2008 was formed after merging the assembly segments of Chengalpattu, Thiruporur, Madurantakam (SC), Uthiramerur and Kancheepuram, which were earlier part of the now defunct Chengalpattu Lok Sabha constituency, and Alandur, which was earlier part of Chennai South Lok Sabha constituency.
