During the unprecedented attack on Mumbai between November 26 to 29, many people from the security forces, the police, fire service, hotel employees, guests of the Taj Hotel and general public were killed or wounded. In the aftermath of this terror attack, the Taj Group has witnessed an outpouring of emotional support from well-wishers in India and across the globe, both for the restoration of the hotel and to offer relief for those affected by the attack. In response to this, the Taj Group has set up a public service welfare trust fund, the Taj Public Service Welfare Trust (TPS Welfare Trust).
The objective of the TPS Welfare Trust is to provide immediate relief to all victims of the recent attack, including the families of those who were killed, be it the general public, the security forces, employees of the Taj or employees of other establishments affected by the terrorists. The Trust will continue to discharge its mandate in the coming years, specifically covering relief to victims of sudden acts of violence, natural disasters, and other tragic events that inflict damage to life and property. Applications are being made to obtain various approvals including government approvals for receiving foreign donations so that the Trust can commence immediate relief measures.
Besides the Taj Group, the Sir Dorab Tata Trust and the Sir Ratan Tata Trust have committed a significant initial contribution to the Trust.
Intended beneficiaries of the Trust as well as individuals or companies wishing to donate are invited to send their requests/proposals to the address given below:
