    What Ratan Tata did for the Mumbai victims.... a every Indian should know

    Ratan Tata is the chairman of Indian Hotels who own the Taj Mahal Hotel Mumbai, which was the target of the terrorists last year .

    Hotel President a 5 star property also belongs to Indian Hotels.
    The following is really touching.
    What Ratan Tata did for the Mumbai victims.... Don't miss!!!!!!
    SALUTE TO
    SHRI RATAN TATA

    A. The Tata Gesture

    All category of employees including those who had completed even 1 day as casuals were treated on duty during the time the hotel was closed.
    Relief and assistance to all those who were injured and killed
    The relief and assistance was extended to all those who died at the railway station, surroundings including the “Pav- Bha ji” vendor and the pan shop owners.
    During the time the hotel was closed, the salaries were sent by money order.
    A psychiatric cell was established in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences to counsel those who needed such help.
    The thoughts and anxieties going on people’s mind was constantly tracked and where needed psychological help provided.
    Employee outreach centers were opened where all help, food, water, sanitation, first aid and counseling was provided. 1600 employees were covered by this facility.
    Every employee was assigned to one mentor and it was that person’s responsibility to act as a “single window” clearance for any help that the person required.
    Ratan Tata personally visited the families of all the 80 employees who in some manner – either through injury or getting killed – were affected.
    The dependents of the employees were flown from outside Mumbai to Mumbai and taken care off in terms of ensuring mental assurance and peace. They were all accommodated in Hotel President for 3 weeks.
    Ratan Tata himself asked the families and dependents – as to what they wanted him to do.
    In a record time of 20 days, a new trust was created by the Tatas for the purpose of relief of employees.
    Whatg is unique is that even the other people, the railway employees, the police staff, the pedestrians who had nothing to do with Tatas were covered by compensation. Each one of them was provided subsistence allowance of Rs. 10K per month for all these people for 6 months.
    A 4 year old granddaughter of a vendor got 4 bullets in her and only one was removed in the Government hospital. She was taken to Bombay hospital and several lacs were spent by the Tatas on her to fully recover her.
    New hand carts were provided to several vendors who lost their carts.
    Tata will take responsibility of life education of 46 children of the victims of the terror.
    This was the most trying period in the life of the organisation. Senior managers including Ratan Tata were visiting funeral to funeral over the 3 days that were most horrible.
    The settlement for every deceased member ranged from Rs. 36 to 85 lacs [One lakh rupees tranlates to approx 2200 US $ ] in addition to the following benefits:
    a. Full last salary for life for the family and dependents;
    b. Complete responsibility of education of children and dependents – anywhere in the world.
    c. Full Medical facility for the whole family and dependents for rest of their life.
    d. All loans and advances were waived off – irrespective of the amount.
    e. Counselor for life for each person
    B. Epilogue

    How was such passion created among the employees? How and why did they behave the way they did?
    The organisation is clear that it is not something that someone can take credit for. It is not some training and development that created such behaviour. If someone suggests that – everyone laughs

    It has to do with the DNA of the organisation, with the way Tata culture exists and above all with the situation that prevailed that time. The organisation has always been telling that customers and guests are #1 priority
    The hotel business was started by Jamshedji Tata when he was insulted in one of the British hotels and not allowed to stay there.

    He created several institutions which later became icons of progress, culture and modernity. IISc is one such institute. He was told by the rulers that time that he can acquire land for IISc to the extent he could fence the same. He could afford fencing only 400 acres.
    When the HR function hesitatingly made a very rich proposal to Ratan – he said – do you think we are doing enough?
    The whole approach was that the organisation would spend several hundred crore in re-building the property – why not spend equally on the employees who gave their life?
    This is NOT COVRED BY Any NEWS CHANNELS , These People Busy SHOWING DOGS CATS and Dalits and covers all BUL ****

    A suppressed community is still being suppressed. Dalits are stated alongside dogs and cats? Wow, where is your passion??

    Hats off to Ratan Tata!He is such a noble soul.May god bless such noble people.
    Tatas are really great.I am not exaggerating.I worked for one of the TATA companies for almost 6+ years and it was really great when I left the company .I felt very nice working with such a genuine and impressive company.

    I had taken a long leave for 1+ year and at the end of my long leave I wanted to resign since I was about to deliver.But the HR told me you are entitled to take maternity leave and it is every employees right.It is upto you to avail the facility.I took 3 months of ML and then had claimed my expenses too after which I resigned:hide:.No other go for me.They gave me every single penny I had to get and I am getting my pension as well now.

    Yes , I had cribbed for the low sal when I was working.But when I left the company I left with an awe.TATAs ROCK![​IMG]

    Forgot to add - That particular year (I think 2005) TATAs had calculated the EVA wrong and at the end of the year , they paid back the employees based on the grade and the exp.I got around 1.5 lacs when I WAS ON LOSS OF PAY (leave).

    Have I become a TATA campaigner?????I was just bowled by his noble gesture which triggered my memories.

    Parsis when they landed on the Gujarat coast, as the legend goes- added sugar to a cup of milk, signifying unity and value addition to the Society.
    Ratan Tata is a bachelor and doesnot build empires for his kith and kin as most industrialists do, especially ones in Tamilnadu.

    It is a gesture of being more rationale and humanitarian and offering lip service- I guess this was not reported by any newspaper in their frontpage; it could have been one!
