Mahatma Gandhi’s first visit to Jamshedpur

Jamshedpur: The ties that Tatas share with Mahatma Gandhi goes back to 1909 when Sir Ratan Tata, younger son of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, sent a letter and a cheque of Rs. 25,000 to assist Mahatma Gandhi’s work in South Africa.

Thereafter, Mahatma Gandhi visited Jamshedpur for the first time on August 8, 1925 with a twin objective – resolving labour conflict and visiting India’s first planned industrial township. During his stay, he visited several places in the city and the steel plant. He addressed the workers at TISCO Institute, now known as the United Club.

During his visit, he mentioned, “Tatas represent the spirit of adventure”. He reiterated Tatas’ commitment to the nation and its people.
