JRD Tata believed in the concept that infrastructure building carried the utmost importance in the society as of today. The Tata group as of date is recognized by the Indians not as an industrial powerhouse but the utmost an individual or a group can do for a country. JRD Tata was a true Indian at heart... unlike most industrial houses and the politicians of today. PowerPoint Presentation: . He was a one man show! This one individual was able to build the complete infrastructure our country India has as on date. Most industrial houses believe and live on the surmise that monetary gains are the first priority. For JRD Tata it was the last priority We look up to him…in every aspect of life :: :
