JamshedpurJharkhand. It was named after the industrialist Jamshetji Tata and is home to such industrial giants as Tata Steel and Tata Motors. Jamshedpur is one of the 'Industrial Cities' of India, being known by many simply as "The Steel City". Jamshedpur is completely maintained by Tata Steel for the most part.

By planeJamshedpur airport can be used for bringing in chartered planes but a night landing facility is not available. The usage of the airport is limited to chartered planes of the TATA group .
At present there are no commercial flights to the city. A few airlines started operation from Jamshedpur in circa 2007, however they were forced to withdraw due to no viability of operation due to conversion of airport from 3c to 2c which means that runway length will be shorter and that no more than 45 passengers can be accommodated on the flight.
Hired cars, minibuses and auto rickshaws are available in all parts of the town. Auto Rickshaws are available 24/7 at Jamshedpur railway station. However there is no pre paid booth. Be prepared to bargain hard.
