Jamshedpur (86.20E 22.79N) was founded in 1907 by Jamshedji Tata for the express purpose of becoming the iron and steel center of India.  The first blast furnaces of the Tata Iron and Steel Company were completed in 1911, and by 1914 production of pig iron had reached 150,000 tons per year. Production was 800,000 tons per year by 1942.
