as realty transactions took place between Tatas and Unitech. As reported, the SFIO Mumbai report suspected that a R1,700-crore realty deal between Tatas and Unitech in 2007 could have been meant for funding Unitech’s telecom licence issued in January 2008. Both Tata Group and Unitech have already denied any wrongdoing.
On the issue of Cabinet’s approval to the recommendations made in the Mudgal report on Walmart-lobbying issue and the Action Taken Report (ATR) by the MCA, Pilot said: “The Cabinet could not devote much time on Thursday due to the Telangana issue. Cabinet may take it up in its next meeting.”
The Cabinet has to discuss the findings of Mudgal panel that probed allegations of lobbying activities by Walmart to enter the Indian market, as well as the pursuant Action Taken Report. This is because the decision to set up a one-man inquiry panel was also taken by the Cabinet earlier in the year.
