As part of their training, TAS recruits are taken through the Tata Group’s various sectors, businesses, financials and development strategies, by some of the best managing directors and top level executives. They visit corporate offices, factories and plants of various Group companies and interact with management executives as well as the operation teams in order to further their learning experience.
TAS, formerly known as the Tata Administrative Services, is the flagship leadership programme conceived by JRD Tata, the late chairman of the Tata Group in 1956.
With TAS, he aimed to create a talent pipeline of leaders who would steer the Group companies and make them stronger - fortifying the Tata Group as well as contributing to nation-building.
"The Tata Administrative Service is an excellent concept – to induct talented young men and women into the house of Tata with a perspective greater than any one company and mobility across functions and corporate entities. The rotation period of a year and the ‘incubation’ for five years appears to have evolved into a very good programme. In the next phase, the Group perhaps needs to look at development needs and retention of talented managers through their middle management phase and upto their entry into senior management. TAS could provide excellent learning and insight to how such an effort could be designed and implemented."

Executive Director, Tata Industries
We bring to the notice of all concerned that we i.e., Tata Sons and other Tata companies have deployed a merit-based employee selection practice. We do not charge/accept any amount or security deposit from job seekers during the selection process or while inviting candidates for an interview.
We have noticed that fake job offers in the name of companies like Tata Motors, Tata Consultancy Services and Tata AutoComp Systems and certain other Tata companies as well as fictitious entities like 'Tata Groups Limited', 'Tata India Limited' have been circulated by some unauthorised persons/fraudsters. Some fraudsters are using the names of Tata companies to solicit job applications and require the job seekers/applicants to pay processing fees or deposit amount by sending false e-mails or by making fraudulent telephone calls. We state that we have already lodged a complaint with Delhi Police and Mumbai Police about the said fraudulent actions. If any person receives any unsolicited or fraudulent communication offering a job or an interview call from a Tata company against payment of money, it is suggested not to respond. We shall not accept any liability towards the representation made in any fraudulent communication or its consequences and such fraudulent communication shall not be treated as any kind of offer or representation by any Tata company.
On receipt of an interview call for any job in any Tata company, the candidate may take some measures such as visiting the official web site of the concerned Tata company to get the contact details and enquire with the human resources department of such company about the interview details and other relevant information.
