The theme of this year`s Founder`s Day is Future Ready – Connected. Agile. Sustainable.
The year 2020 is a historic year for us as the Commemorative Postal Stamp on 100 Years of Jamshedpur was also released by M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice President of India, on February 17, 2020.
Speaking to the media at the venue, N Chandrasekaran said, “It is indeed a pleasure to visit Jamshedpur. This clean and green city is an actualization of the vision of our Founder and is today a role model of sustainable urban development.”
“Tata Steel is on a growth path despite the poor macro-economic conditions in India. We expect steel demand to pick up on the back of increased government spending on infrastructure and revival of the domestic economy. We are already seeing early signs of revival and expect FY 21 to be a better year for the steel industry than FY 20,” he added.
