Spotlight city

Jamsehdpur About this sound pronunciation  (जमशेदपूर in Devanagari) is a city located in the state of Jharkhand in India, founded by the late Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata as Sakchi. Located in the East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand on the Chota Nagpur plateau, Jamshedpur is surrounded by the beautiful Dalma Hills, and the rivers Subarnrekha and Kharkai border the North & West of the city, respectively. The reason for the founding of Jamshedpur was the starting up of the first Iron and steel plant in India, by Tata Steel.

In 1919 Lord Chelmsford named the city Jamshedpur, in honour of its founder, Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata , whose birthday is celebrated on 3rd March as Founder's Day. J. N. Tata had written to his son Dorabji Tata about his vision of a great city in the area. Jamshedpur is nicknamed as the Steel City. It is also referred to as Tatanagar after the name of its railway station, or simply as 'Tata' in deference to the significant presence of Tata companies in the city.
