Contributing towards the upliftment of economically and socially disadvantaged communities is an important element of every Tata company operation. With a strategic approach towards driving Affirmative Action (AA) in India, our initiatives are specifically focused on the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (SC and ST) communities in India.
The Tata Affirmative Action Programme has defined the criteria, and the process is driven through 4 Es: Employment, Employability, Entrepreneurship and Education. We commit to exercising positive discrimination in employing personnel from historically disadvantaged communities and engaging them as business partners, without sacrificing merit or quality, adhering in letter, spirit and action to the Tata Affirmative Action Programme.
Through this initiative, we aim to enhance the employability and entrepreneurship opportunities for the members of the SC and ST communities, by creating and promoting access to quality education and technical skills.
