Our town Jamshedpur with its fascinating heritage as India’s first planned industrial city will soon be a sportive centenarian. Its colonial architecture — witnessed the two world wars — has a mix of British, American and Indian influences in bungalows, churches, clubs and schools. It is primarily located at the confluence of Kharkai and Subarnarekha Rivers in a hilly region and is surrounded by the Dalma Hills running from west to east and covered with dense forests. Jamshedpur lies in the southern end of the state of Jharkhand.
The United Club of Jamshedpur, iconic, modern and epitome of luxury is the Director’s Bungalow established by the Tata Steel Company in 1911 with the purpose of providing entertainment and opportunity for social gatherings in its new avatar. The United Club stands as the jewel of Jamshedpur and draws from both the rich heritage of the city and the words of the visionary. Over the period of time the management has not only preserved the old world charm but added modern amenities to create an exquisite ambience. During the earlier times Membership for the club was open to all and its fees cost was just 8 annas to Rs 5, depending on the salary of the individual. It was ensured by the management of Tata Steel that everyone could participate and mingle as equals at the social level.
Today The United Club of Jamshedpur is the most sought after destination for any corporate or social do and the hot bed of sporting and recreational activities.

The Tisco Institute was established on C Road in front of the Director’s Bungalow to provide wholesome entertainment and opportunity for social gatherings. Membership was open to all. Fees were eight annas to Rs.5 on a sliding scale, depending upon the salary of the individual.
The TISCO Management ensured that every-one could participate and mingle as equals at the social level. According to the Harold Mann report, the Institute had several tennis courts, a large field, evidently intended for football, hockey, cricket and other games. There was a bowling alley, now converted partially into a girl's school and an outlet of the Army and Navy stores.
There was a large and beautifully decorated concert hall inside the building for dances and other entertainment. It also had a billiard room, a library, a newspaper room, a room for light refreshments and a ladies room.
By December 1918, the total membership reached 145. However, the institutes drew a fair amount of flak as critics claimed that in an attempt to make it useful for all classes, certain essential things were left out and many things which were introduced were disliked. In the 1920s, when both the company and the township expanded, a new socio-cultural policy was formulated. It was decided that a number of cultural organizations, run with management help, would be more effective.
In the 1930s, the Tisco Institute was very active. An excerpt from a Tisco Review says, after a long interval, the Tisco Institute (Northern Town) was once again crowded with the elite of the town on the evening of Monday, 10th July, 1933 to hear good music, to see the artistic dances. As in the past, the credit of the performance goes to the ladies of the Indian Association and the Council of Women.
The English part of the programme was conducted by Mrs.W.O.Handerson and was very well selected and much appreciated by all. The Indian part was in the hands of Mrs.A.C.Bose, who in a very short time at her disposal, coaxed her young girl friends to join the music and dances which were performed so well that most of the items had to be repeated. The technical students directed by Mr.S.K.Nanavati, performed a short skirt which kept the audience amused. The tickets of the above variety entertainment were kept particularly low being only Re.1 and the gross receipt was about Rs.300.
In 1935, an effort was made by the Institute to organize an association of dramatic clubs, so that all such clubs of Jamshedpur could come under one umbrella and perform together. The move initiated by Mr.Keenan ultimately proved to be a failure.
The company felt small cultural organizations would be more successful in propagating cultural activities. So, like the Beldih Club, the Tisco Institute (Northern Town) was transformed into The United Club and its branch in the South Town was named G-Town Club in the 1940s.
