About Tata Chemical Society for Rural Development

Tata Chemicals believes in a cohesive, inclusive and integrated society, in which all individuals have access to opportunities for personal growth and inclusive economic growth. The present socio-economic environment necessitates a more constructive role by industry for achieving inclusiveness and complementing the ongoing efforts of Government and civil society in enhancing social equity.

Improving the quality of life and fostering sustainable and integrated development in the communities where it operates is central to Tata Chemicals’ corporate philosophy. In order to do so Tata Chemicals established Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development (TCSRD) in 1980 as a society and trust. The principle aim and objective as written in the memorandum of association, of which Tata Chemicals is a principle promoter is to undertake, carry out, promote, sponsor, assist or aid directly or in other manner, any activity for:

  • The promotion and growth of rural economy.
  • Rural welfare.
  • Activities relating to environmental protection.
  • Conservation of natural resources.
  • Creating and developing facilities for public education.
  • Fostering conservation and research in the field of natural history.
  • Other programmes for promoting the socio-economic development and welfare or uplift of the people in any rural area in India.
