Industrialist and chairman emeritus of Tata Sons Ratan Tata might not be the richest man in the world but for sure, he is rich at heart. The greatest man has won people’s hearts time and again for his contribution to our country.
The owner of Tata Group of India also proved that being on the Forbes list doesn’t make one rich but giving it back to society is one that matters the most. Talking about Tata Group, the company was set up in 1868 and also gained international recognition after its tie-up with several brands globally.
Today, in India, four out of five top-ranked companies belong to the Tata Group only. Apart from that, they have 96 companies under them amongst which 36 publicly-listed Tata enterprises like Titan, Tata Steel and much more.
Ratan Tata donates 65% of the family’s and the company’s fortune to charity. Yes, you read it right! Therefore, any profit made by the company doesn’t really impact Ratan Tata’s personal finances as it goes straight into the hands of charitable organizations.
Ratan Tata and his family are highly involved in philanthropic work since the inception of the company. In fact, he has made a lot of contributions to the development of India by means of healthcare facilities and enhancing the education system.
Ratan Tata makes a rare speech at an event with PM Modi
On Thursday, Ratan Tata along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated seven state-of-the-art cancer hospitals and laid the foundation stone for 7 more.
“Today, seven new cancer hospitals have been inaugurated in Assam. There was a time, even one hospital getting opened up in seven years was a thing to celebrate. Times have changed now. I have been told three more cancer hospitals will be ready for your service in a few months,” PM Modi said.
Ratan Tata said, “I dedicate my last years to help make Assam a state that recognises and is recognised by all.”
“Today is an important day in the history of Assam. Higher-level healthcare facility for cancer treatment which was earlier not available in the state is being brought here. Cancer is not a rich man’s disease,” he said. “Assam can now say that even a small state of India has been equipped with world-class cancer treatment facilities,” Mr Tata added.
