Ratan Tata will receive the state’s highest civilian award, the ‘Asom Baibhav Award,’ from the Assam government. Assam’s chief minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, told reporters that Ratan Tata has made a significant contribution to cancer treatment in the state.

“Delighted to announce that the Government of Assam has decided to confer its highest civilian award, Assam Baibhav, to Ratan Tata, Chairman TATA Trusts for his exceptional contribution towards furthering cancer care in Assam,” the Chief Minister tweeted.

The Tata Trust Board of Trustees announced in 2017 that it had approved Rs 540 crore for the establishment of a three-tier cancer care grid at the state, capital, and district levels. A total investment of Rs 1400 crore is planned for the project.

A South Asian Cancer Research Centre is also proposed as part of the project, with the goal of conducting research into the causes of cancer and developing treatment protocols with a focus on South Asia. Asom Baibhav Award is one of the biggest award of the country.

Naval Ratan Tata is a former chairman of Tata Sons and an Indian industrialist and philanthropist. From 1990 to 2012, he served as chairman of Tata Group, and from October 2016 to February 2017, he served as interim chairman, and he continues to lead the company’s charitable trusts.

He has received two of India’s highest civilian honours, the Padma Vibhushan (2008) and Padma Bhushan (2009). (2000). He was born in 1937, the son of Naval Tata, who was later adopted by Ratanji Tata, the son of Jamsetji Tata, the founder of the Tata Group. He graduated from Cornell University’s College of Architecture in 1975 and Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program in 1975.

He joined his company in 1961 after working on the Tata Steel shop floor, and he was J. R. D. Tata’s apparent successor when the latter retired in 1991.

In an attempt to transform Tata from a largely India-centric group into a global business, he got Tata Tea to buy Tetley, Tata Motors to buy Jaguar Land Rover, and Tata Steel to buy Corus.
