Chandrasekaran, while addressing shareholders at Tata Motors’ 75th annual general meeting, said the company would also look to unlock non-core investments in order to deleverage the business.

“In terms of path ahead, I would like to speak about five dimensions. Currently, the Tata Motors Group has a net automotive debt of Rs 48,000 crore and we are deleveraging this business substantially.

“We have set a target to significantly bring down the debt and come to near-zero debt levels in the next three years,” Chandrasekaran told shareholders.

The auto major has already initiated steps towards this and set a target to generate positive free cash flows from FY22 onwards, he added.
