Tata Group-Built on Trust & Ethics
“We do not claim to be more unselfish, more generous or more philanthropic than other people. But we started on sound and straight forward business principles, considering the interests of the shareholders our own, and the health and welfare of the employees the sure foundation of our prosperity.” Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata. (1839-1904),Our Founder. “The wealth gathered by Jamsetji Tata and his sons in half a century of industrial pioneering formed but a minute fraction of the amount by which they enriched the nation. The whole of that wealth is held in trust for the people and used exclusively for their benefit. The cycle is thus complete, what came from the people has gone back to the people many times over” J.R.D. Tata (1904-1993)
