Aadhaar – Tata Affirmative Action Programme

Tata Motors believes that inclusive, equitable and holistic development of society is essential for nation building as for sustainable growth of the organisation. Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) constitute 40% share in total beneficiaries and total CSR budget of Tata Motors’ budget spent for beneficiaries.

To promote inclusivity, Tata Motors has institutionalized Tata Affirmative Action Programme (TAAP) known as ‘Aadhar’ that practices positive discrimination for SC and ST in case of Employment, Entrepreneurship and higher coverage in CSR led programmes.

With HR relaxing the age and marks criteria and encouraging a decentralised recruitment process through Tribal Industrial Training Institutes, the SC/ST percentage in temporary workforce has jumped from 20% percent in 2007 to 24% now.

We take conscious efforts to extend business to the SC and ST, and have developed intensive engagement mechanism to identify and mentor AA vendors. In FY 2018-19, we extended business worth ₹ 11 crore to active AA vendors are engaged as ‘service vendors’ with TML and cumulatively, 72% of AA business value is with them.
