So I'm guessing TMJ would be Vellore too.
I stand corrected.Thank you.I may have made an error in my observation.

According to this, TMJ is Madras (Ayanavaram); and TNJ is Vellore.

So would that indicate that TM* was for Madras (now Chennai) and TN* was for districts of TN?
Some oldtimer members from TN could confirm.
