Established in 1980, the primary aim of Tata Chemical Society for Rural Development (TCSRD) is to initiate and support community development programmes in and around regions where Tata Chemicals Limited facilities are located. 


And while each region is different in terms of geographic spread, subcultures and socio-economic requirements, TCSRD strives to protect, nurture and uplift the communities by adopting an integrated approach to development and designing region-specific need-based programmes. 


While the roots for TCSRD interventions were laid in Mithapur, today they extend to all the areas where Tata Chemicals has operations. This includes Farrukhabad in UP, regions in West Bengal, Mambattu, Cuddalore and Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu, Barwani in Madhya Pradesh, Nellore in Andhra Pradesh and Amravati in Maharashtra.


Improving the quality of life and fostering sustainable and integrated development in the communities where it operates is central to Tata Chemicals’ corporate philosophy. 


In order to do so Tata Chemicals established Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development (TCSRD) in 1980 as a society and trust. 


The principle aim and objective as written in the memorandum of association, of which Tata Chemicals is a principle promoter is to undertake, carry out, promote, sponsor, assist or aid directly or in other manner, any activity for:

  •  The promotion and growth of rural economy.
  •  Rural welfare.
