I can't recall Tatas sponsoring any chess related event in India!
Much less studies.
One of the oddities of today's global free economy!
(In case some are wondering what I'm talking about, Tata is an Indian business group which acquired Corus Steel).

Tata aquired Corus with the traditional Corus top chess tournament. The studies day is part of the program of this leading festival. By the way, Indian players topped by the world champion Vishwanathan Anand regularly take part in the crown GM groups of the tournament.

Well, Tata is relatively one of the more social minded business entities in India.
Glad that they continued their sponsorship of the event!
