On Wednesday, the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) restored Cyrus Mistry as executive chairman of Tata Sons. Since the restoration order will be operational after four weeks, Tatas have a time of four weeks to file an appeal. In addition, the tribunal held that the subsequent appointment of N Chandrasekaran as the executive chairman is illegal, the report added. NCLAT also quashed the conversion of Tata Sons into a private company from a public firm.
The appellate tribunal was scheduled to pronounce its judgment over the petition moved by Cyrus Mistry and the two investment firms challenging his removal from the group. Former Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry, the sixth chairman of Tata Sons, was removed from the position in October 2016. After Ratan Tata announced his retirement, Cyrus Mistry took over as the chairman of the group in 2012.
