As an aviator and pioneer flier, he brought commercial aviation to India. JRD's passion for planes led him to set up Air India in 1948. When it was nationalised in 1953, under his chairmanship Air-India was ranked among the finest airlines in the world.

Slide 8:

TELCO began with locomotives, but he foresaw it becoming a great engineering company of which Tata Iron and Steel Company (Tisco; now Tata Steel) was the springboard

Slide 9:

“ Without support provided by Jeh, history would have been very different. Homi Bhabha may not have stayed on In India; TIFR may not have come into existence, as it is now ” Dr. K.R Menon (sucessor of Dr Homi Bhabha)

And as a philanthropist, he was respected for building and keeping alive the tremendously active Tata charitable trusts

Slide 11:

“Leadership, according to him, meant motivating others. once he was confident that a manager would perform, he gave him a long rope.” "As chairman, my main responsibility is to inspire respect

Slide 12:

According to JRD, quality had to match innovation. He stressed: "If you want excellence, you must aim at perfection. I know that aiming at perfection has its drawbacks. It makes you go into detail that you can avoid. It takes a lot of energy out of you but that's the only way you finally actually achieve excellence

Slide 13:

At his behest, Tata Steel became one of the earliest companies in India to have a dedicated human resource department

Slide 14:

JRD was also the first industrialist to move beyond the welfare of his own workers to that of the surrounding areas in which the Tata companies and factories operated. He did not want his companies to be islands of prosperity in a sea of poverty .

Slide 15:

JRD, who was known for his outspokenness and boldness, made some highly critical comments about the economic policies of the Central Government. JRD's trenchant attack of the government policies was trimmed down by the reporters of the dailies to appear very natural and constructive (T.Damu, Vice-President, Taj Group of Hotels )

Slide 16:

It was their highest regard and respect for that towering personality called JRD that did the job silently.

Slide 17:

I saw him as a role model for his simplicity, his generosity, his kindness and the care he took of his employees If at all time stops and asks me what I want from life, I would say I wish JRD were alive today to see how the company we started has grown. He would have enjoyed it wholeheartedly. SUDHA NARAYAN MURTY
