About 66 percent of the equity capital of Tata Sons is held by philanthropic trusts

Dorabji Tata Trust and the Sir Ratan Tata Trust, which were created by the families
of the sons of Jamsetji Tata, the Founder.
Tata Sons is also the owner of the Tata name and several Tata trademarks, which are

Tata Industries has initiated and promoted Tata ventures in several sectors, including
control systems, information technology, financial services, auto components,
advanced materials, telecom hardware and telecommunication services.

Characteristics of the Industry to which the company belonging to

Telecommunications started in the nineteenth century with the telegraph, and
developed through the telephone and radio to TV to satellites and the Internet etc.
The data transmitted has advanced from signals through voice to pictures and data
and, with the development of convergence, to combinations of these. Every year,
new technologies increase the services available and the speed of delivery. A
combination of factors is resulting in the ever-decreasing cost of these services. The
Communication Companies in India are on the ever rising trend and there has been
a stupendous growth in this sector over the last decade. The telecommunication
industry in India is one of the rapidly growing industries in the world and has also
developed the second largest communication network.
The entire evolution of the telecom industry can be classified into three distinct
Phase I- Pre-Libralisation Era (1980-89)
- Post Libralisation Era (1990-99)
- Post 2000

Until the late 90s the Government of India held a monopoly on all types of
communications as a result of the Telegraph Act of 1885. As mentioned earlier in
the chapter, until the industry was liberalised in the early nineties, it was a heavily
government-controlled and small-sized market, Government policies have played a
key role in shaping the structure and size of the Telecom industry in India. As a
result, the Indian telecom market is one of the most liberalised market in the world
with private participation in almost all of its segments. The New Telecom Policy
(NTP-99) provided the much needed impetus to the growth of this industry and set
the trend for libralisation in the industry.

P a g e | 20

The business immersion programme which is for four months is a very big opportunity
for me to improve myself in everything. The business immersion programme gives the
chance for improving the individuals personality, Working as an intern with Tata
Communication Ltd. gives me an opportunity to sharpen my technical knowledge that is
important for my future and also to develop the skills like Business Management,
Communication Skills, Self Confidence, Presentation Skills, personality Development
and over all development. Being a management student and working with Tata
Communication ,we are just trying to understand what are the basic requirement to run a
business. This is a very big opportunity and a very big platform wherein I can improve my
skills. The personal goal which I am hoping from this internship is to gain deep Knowledge
about Internet connectivity, in depth knowledge about Networks products and services.
During this period, we are taught the importance of time and how and where to use our time.
We are taught how to talk with customers and represent in front of them and deal with them.
I am developing skills of dealing with customers professionally. I am developing to manage
stress and work load , the most important thing that most of the people dont able to manage
stress and work pressure. I am gaining knowledge about the networks product and services,
and I am also getting well versed with how to work these services which globally connect
with us. We are being taught how to convince the people on phone professionally.

2. Professional or Career Goals. What new things will you be learning

in the organization that may be useful in future job or in your career?
My Professional career goal will be to enhance the managerial skills, and to be updated
to current situation of market. My marketing knowledge is developing which will be helping

P a g e | 21
me a lot during my placement time. I want to develop my knowledge in networking field
and understand their product and services. I want to interact with more and more customers
because by this I am improving my communication skill and I am getting more idea about
the customers perception. I want to learn, how the company analyze and utilize their idea
and compete with their competitor. I also want to understand the international market,
and the Indian market , how International MNCs penetrate Indian Market and vice varsa.
I want to learn how to professionally follow and adhere to the instructions given to me
by my manager.At the same time I want to learn what kind of problem comes in thecorporate
world and What different types of situation an organization faces in the market.
I want to understand the strategies undertaken by the company that will be enhance my
learning and make me an effective professional in the future. My interactions with my
company guide have made me realize that how difficult to convince the customers and take
out the information from customer. Most important factor this BI Program does is developing
the individual performance, Confidence and Motivation. During internship we get different
ideas and it is developing our mind. I am not only targeting at my career and personal goal
by increasing my self-confidence but also want to gain more experience. I want to learn,
how a company satisfies his customer needs and makes them loyal towards the companies
products and services and the strategies of making healthy relationship with customers, and
how to manage customers problem.

During our Academics, we were taught about various things and basic Knowledge that are
requirement for running a Business. If business and corporate are not being able to satisfy

P a g e | 22
the customers need and requirements ,then the organization cannot grow or sustain.
We have learned about Marketing and communication of the product and how the
company works at operational level. Tata Communication is a reputed corporate
organization where we get an exposure regarding our communication and negotiation
skills, personality and most important my self-confidence. In PGDM course we have
learnt the concepts theoretically. So, we dont get that much needed exposure.
In the company we get to do things practically and we get a deeper knowledge. In the
Business Immersion Programme, we are learning the real aspects of managing and dealing
people that are called as clients in professionalism. In classroom sessions, we do not get a
chance to perform practically. Hence the business immersion experience is
complementing to that learning in which we will be give technical, and
adequate responses to the queries raised by the customers. In Tata Communication,
we get an opportunity to interact with customers and we discuss our products and services
to them and hopefully ask them to fix a meeting. we are learning the importance of
how to maintain a healthy relation with each of our customers. The internship has just started
and within 15 Days we are motivated to learn and Perform more and developed the
skill power. Tata Communication is providing some new learning every day to their interns.
We hope that we get more opportunities to learn with Tata Communication Ltd.
