Tata Steel Rural Development Society (TSRDS) was established in 1979 to engage in various social development programmes in the rural areas within which Tata Steel operated its business, specifically the mines and collieries spread over Jharkhand (until 2000, a part of the state of Bihar) and Orissa.

Both states are located in eastern India. Among the stated objectives of TSRDS are: to create a self-sustaining process of integrated rural development and to network with agencies (government and non-government) for bringing best available resources and practices to the rural community it works with.

The Society is actively involved in the spheres of livelihood generation, health and hygiene, and people empowerment. In addition, it has identified the advancement of education, sports and self-reliance as tools to ensure a better quality of life for the people it works with.

For people across the country, the Tata Trusts symbolise humanitarianism and personify the prodigious force that advances new frontiers of social and economic development.
