Jamshedpur History


Jamshedpur history provides detailed information on the establishment of the first industrial unit of Iron and Steel Plant in India and the industrial progress of the country.
The modern city of Jamshedpur is the brain child of Sri Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata who was the main force behind the industrial revolution of India.

Jamshetji Tata had set up the industrial unit of Tata Iron and Steel Plant in Jamshedpur. However, after the demise of the founder leader of Tata Iron and Steel Plant, Sri Jamshetji Nusserwanji Tata, his unfulfilled dream was finally realized by his eldest son, Sri Dorabji Tata who led to the further expansion of the business establishment. Sri Dorabji Tata had built the modern city of Sakchi that was later renamed as Jamshedpur.

Sri Dorabji's brother, Sri Ratan Tata took part in the Indian freedom Struggle. He believed that India can attain her cherished dream of becoming an industrially progressive country, only when the country is freed of foreign rule and oppression. After independence, Sri Ratan Tata diverted his attention to the well being of the company and Tata Iron and Steel Plant became one of the pioneering companies of the world under his guidance. The industrial city of Jamshedpur became one of the developed cities of India.

The reins of the company went to Sri Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhai Tata after the death of Sri Ratan Tata. Sri Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhai Tata had further led to the modernization and beautification of Jamshedpur. He had constructed new roads for improving the transportation system of the industrial city. Sri Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhai Tata also constructed several gardens and recreational parks for entertainment of the citizens of Jamshedpur.

The modern city of Jamshedpur bears relics to the rich industrial history of our country.
