Jamshedpur , August 27, 2019

Tata Steel, today, paid homage to Sir Dorabji Tata on his 160th Birth Anniversary at the Sir Dorabji Tata Park, Jamshedpur. Mr. Anand Sen, President, TQM & Steel Business, Tata Steel, graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Mr. R Ravi Prasad, President, Tata Workers’ Union was the Guest of Honour for the function.

The function saw floral tributes being offered by all present. It was attended by senior executives of Tata Steel including Mr. Chanakya Choudhary, Vice President, Corporate Services, Mr. Sudhansu Pathak, Vice President, Steel Manufacturing, Mr. Arun Misra, Vice President, Raw Materials, and Mr. Avneesh Gupta, Vice President, Shared Services. Others present included senior citizens, representatives from the Tata Workers’ Union, and Company employees.

In his address to the gathering, Mr. Anand Sen said, “Sir Dorabji Tata was the first Chairman of Tata Steel, who infused the Company with standards in corporate governance that were way ahead of its time. A keen sportsman from his early years, Sir Dorabji Tata was the first President of the Indian Olympic Association and was instrumental in steering India’s entry into the Olympics. On this auspicious day, we remember him with respect and reverence for his contribution to Industry and Sports”.

Mr. R Ravi Prasad said, “The very existence of the city of Jamshedpur should be credited to the efforts of Sir Dorabji Tata. A hundred years back when there was not even a communication system in place, he was instrumental in the development of the city and various employee welfare measures like 8-hour working day, Provident Fund, Medical Aid, Maternity Leave, Gratuity etc. Truly, Sir Dorabji Tata played a great role in the development of Tata Steel and the city of Jamshedpur”.

Apart from the initiatives for Tata Steel and the city of Jamshedpur, Sir Dorabji Tata was instrumental in securing a place for India in the 1924 Olympics at Paris and was chosen as a Member of the International Olympic Committee. India won its first Gold medal in Hockey at the very next Olympics in 1928 in Amsterdam.
