In his Instagram post, he wrote, “I remember the first time I ever visited Jamshedpur when I was on holiday from college. Mr. R.G. Da Costa and Mr. J.D. Chokshi invited me to visit the Telco plant and have a walk around the plant. This trip was much before I started working on the Tata Steel floor, my first interaction with the legacy city of Jamshedpur.”
Jamshedpur is India’s one of the first planned cities situated in Jharkhand began as a village known as Sakchi. It was selected by Jamsetji as the location of his steel plant- and in 1919 Lord Chelmsford renamed it Jamshedpur in his honor.

The chairman emeritus of Tata sons recently made a largehearted donation to Prime Minister’s funds for the COVID-19 relief operations.
The Tata group’s website states: “When the earliest settlers arrived in what was then Sakchi in 1908, they were lured by the idea of making a home in a city yet to be created. The idea of present-day Jamshedpur started of course with the setting up of Tata Steel plant.”
“Moneylenders, artisans, young men, and women looking to start a new life moved here. Invited by the company to be a part of this dream that Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata had seen and his successors Sir Dorabji, sir Ratan and RD Tata would turn into reality.”
