On 16 December 1782 Pope Pius VI confirmed his appointment as Metropolitan Archbishop of Archdiocese of Kodungalloor, thus imprinting in the history of the Archdiocese as the first native Archbishop of Mar Thoma Nazranis of Malankara. On 17 March 1783, he revived the scared Pallium of Metropolitan Archbishop from Pope Pius VI. At the same time, he also received all the privileges and authority to unite Mar Thoma VI and the Puthenkoor faction to Catholic Church.
