Tata group`s five chairmen since 1868  

Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata
Below is a brief history of the five chairmen in the group`s 143-year history.

1868-1904: Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata laid the foundation of what would grow to become the Tata group. He trained in England and established a trading company and textile mills in India. He set up The Indian Hotels Company and built the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, India`s first luxury hotel, which opened in 1903.

He also established the JN Tata Endowment to encourage Indian scholars to take up higher studies. It was the first of many philanthropic trusts by the Tata Group, which today control 65.8 percent of the shares of Tata Sons, the group`s holding company.
