What are some mind blowing facts about TATA

A lot of great answers had already been told and i think people got pretty much good idea that what Tata group is.But i would like to draw attention towards this man.
What sets Ratan Tata apart from most business tycoons across nation? How do you judge this man’s character? It is his deeds and not just mere words.I respect him more because of following situation where he showed there will be nobody like him.
When iconic Taj hotel of Mumbai, a hotel owned by the Tata group, was under shock and horror, it was Ratan Tata who came to rescue, like an angel from the sky, doing a lot more than he was supposed to do.
Here are some things that Ratan Tata and the Tata group did during the aftermath of 26/11:
  • Employees of all grades, including the ones who had just started at Taj the same day, were treated on duty during the time the hotel was closed.
  • Relief and assistance was provided to all those who were injured and killed
  • The relief and assistance was extended to all those who died at the railway station, surroundings including the “Pav- Bha ji” vendor and the pan shop owners.
  • During the time the hotel was closed, the salaries were sent by money order.
  • A psychiatric cell was established in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences to counsel those who sought any help.
  • The thoughts and anxieties that were getting better of people were constantly tracked, psychological help was provided when the hour demanded.
  • Employee outreach centres were opened where all sorts of help including provision of food, water, sanitation, first aid and counselling was provided. 1600 employees were covered by this facility.
  • Every employee was assigned to a mentor and it was that person’s responsibility to act as a “single window” clearance for any help that the person required.
  • Ratan Tata personally visited the families of all the 80 employees who were affected by the attacks.
  • The dependents of the employees were flown from across the country, and were provided more than sufficient care.
  • In a record time of 20 days, a new trust was created by the Tatas for the purpose of relief of employees.
  • Interestingly, the railway employees, the police staff, the pedestrians who had barely anything to do with Tatas were covered by compensation. Each one of them was provided subsistence allowance of Rs.10K per month for all these people for 6 months.
  • A 4-year old granddaughter of a vendor got 4 bullets in her and only one was removed in the Government hospital. She was taken to Bombay hospital where Tatas sponsored her treatment.
  • New hand carts were provided to several vendors who lost their carts.
  • Tata took responsibility of life education of over forty five children of the victims of the attacks.
  • This was the most trying period in the life of the organisation. Senior managers including Ratan Tata were visiting funeral after funeral over the three days during the aftermath.
  • The settlement for every deceased member ranged from Rs. 36 to 85 lakhs, in addition to the following benefits: a) full last salary for life for the family and dependents; b) complete responsibility of education of children and dependents – anywhere in the world. c) full Medical facility for the whole family and dependents for rest of their life. d) all loans and advances were waived off – irrespective of the amount.
This is the level of care and compassion  he carries in his heart for people.He never waited or asked for any kind of help from government officials.Instead,he took upon himself to help his fellow citizens.We need more philanthropist industralists like him.
