Tata Central Archives (TCA) holds a sizeable number of Archival Records pertaining to the genesis and development of the Tata group and on Indian industrialisation.
Consultation sessions must be scheduled in advance and supervised by the Archivist or an official representative of TCA. We request that you schedule your visit only once you have received written confirmation from the Archives.
Researchers and academics who wish to consult our Records can contact us via email, post or by filling in our online Research Scholar Registration Form.
The Research Scholar Registration Form should be submitted along with a photo identity proof and a letter of introduction from the respective institution or organisation.
TCA does not apply the rules of access uniformly. We do not risk harming the Tata organisation or violating the privacy rights of individuals within our company. More broadly, TCA acts as gatekeepers to Records of ongoing business value to our companies. While we are sympathetic to the needs of historians and academic researchers, TCA will not act in a manner that is detrimental to the Tata organisation and its reputation. TCA takes into consideration the intent of the individual accessing the Records when we make a decision about whether to permit access to certain Records. This is why most outside requests are handled on a case-by-case basis.
TCA is open to researchers from Monday to Friday from 10a.m. to 5p.m.
We are closed on all public holidays.
