About Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata
Born on March 3, 1839 in Navsari in Gujarat, Jamsetji Tata was the first and only child of the scion of a family of Parsi priests, Nusserwanji Tata. Jamsetji joined his father in Bombay when he was 14 years old. After this, Nusserwanji had a young Jamsetji enrolled at Elphinstone College from where he graduated in 1858 as a “green scholar”.
According to the Tata Group, “Jamsetji Tata was more than the entrepreneur who helped India take its place in the league of industrialized nations. He was a patriot and humanitarian whose ideals and vision shaped an exceptional business conglomerate.
He added, “But what made Jamsetji truly unique, the quality that places him in the pantheon of modern India’s greatest sons, was his humanity.”
