The Man Who Gave India An Arm Of Steel

JRD Tata believed that “the strength to defend freedom can only come from widespread industrialisation and technology”. He certainly walked the talk; spearheading industrial growth in India. Concerned about the war against China, he rose to the defence of the nation by offering military trucks with 4-wheel drive; contributing ₹ 30 lakhs from Tata companies and Trusts to the Prime Minister’s National Defence Fund and making it possible for employees to enlist in the armed forces without forsaking pay and increments.
