Jamsetji Tata’s dream for building a new Nation on the strength of industrial possibilities offered by steel seemed utopian in 1882. On 27th February 1908 when the first stake was driven into the soil of Sakchi the dream had come alive. Truth is that, once established, it has been the driving reality in a Country’s shared journey of growth and prosperity. The transformation of Sakchi began within a few years of the arrival of the Tatas and construction of Jamshedpur, India’s first true industrial city began around 1909.
