Days after the Tatas replaced Cyrus Mistry as the chairman of the Tata Sons group, with Ratan Tata as the new chairman, three other members, who were part of the advisory council of the ousted head, had also quit. Tata groups’ Chief of Human Resources NS Rajan was one, among the members who had put their papers, along with business development officer Madhu Kannan, strategist Nirmalya Kumar.

Reportedly, Rajan was handpicked by the ousted chairman Cyrus Mistry and his exit might speculatively be triggered from the replacement of Mistry with Ratan Tata. Rajan had earlier worked for a multi-national professional services based out of London, E&Y, as a global leader. He had also been associated with Ranbaxy, Asian Paints and ABC Consultants. Rajan joined the Tata group as the CHRO in 2013.

On October 24, the Tata Sons group replaced Cyrus Mistry as the the chairman, citing under-performance, following which former chairman Ratan Tata took over the position. With raising criticism in the corporate sector on the way Mistry was replaced, days later the ousted chairman hit back at the Tatas, in a letter which mentioned series of allegations against the Tata Group and Ratan Tata including those relating to fraudulent transactions, unethical practices and conflict of interest.

    Cyrus Mistry was a very bad choice to head house of Tatas. Vijay Mallya could have been a better choice!.

      TATA'S HAVE COME A LONG WAY SINCE THE PING AWAY OF J.R.D. TATA ……...'' fraudulent transactions, unethical practices and conflict of interests.'' ……. AND AS SAID PREVIOUSLY JRD MUST BE SPINNING AROUND IN HIS PARIS TOMB ! EXTREMELY SAD THAT WITH THE LEGACY AND POWER GIVEN TO RATAN TATA BY JRD, RATAN TATA HAS ONLY THOUGHT OF SPREADING THE ''WINGS OF TATA'S'' INTERNATIONALLY, AND PROUD OF ''TATA'S'' BECOMING A ''MAKING-MONEY-MACHINE'' WHEN THE NATION URGENTLY NEEDS SIMPLE-BUT-DIFFICULT PROJECTS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE MILLIONS OF GROWING NUMBERS OF EXTREMELY POOR, HOMELESS, LANDLESS CITIZENS.
