The industrial city was built with planning, intelligence, passion, and forecast by non-other than the late Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata as Sakchi. Mr. JN Tata had this vision to build a great city in the state of Jharkhand, having India's first private iron and steel company.
As its nickname suggests Tatanagar - the heart of the city is named after Tata. It is India's first planned city. The city has also won an International Global Compact City Award from the UN in the year 2004.
When you pass through different regions of Jharkhand, you will find there is a need for development. But the moment you reach Jamshedpur you will see a completely different picture, it is urban, an industrial city with iron, steel and truck manufacturing in large scale. The largest factory is Tata Steel (also called TISCO), it has not only provided jobs for millions of people but has also helped small sectors to evolve.
The urban cities are interdependent more on their connectivity. The government has taken care of the mode of transport. Despite their own services, it has even introduced application-based cabs and peer-to-peer ride-sharing.
Jamshedpur with its infrastructure has outlined a convenient transport system, from the bus service to cabs and rickshaw covers the entire city.
The total geographical area of Jamshedpur is 209 km square. What I found in this city was more than I had been expecting. Let’s take you around Jamshedpur.
I will start with my favorite discovery of my trip Jubilee Park, Sakchi.
Reaching Jubilee Park from Tatanagar station was just a 20 mins drive from the center of the city.
