A statement from Tata Sons
Mumbai: Tata Sons strongly rejects the statement from Mr. Cyrus P. Mistry which seeks to insinuate wrongdoing in the affairs of Air Asia India by Mr. R. Venkataramanan. On the contrary, Air Asia India with the support of Tata Sons, has taken definitive steps both in civil and criminal courts which have cleared the air in relation to the mischievous allegations made by SP Group companies in the NCLT proceedings.
Contrary to any allegations, Tata Sons denies any conduct which could be said to be oppressive or resulting in mismanagement. Tata Sons is of the view that the frivolous allegations levied by Mr. Cyrus P. Mistry and the SP Group are value destructive.
It is ironical that Mr. Cyrus P. Mistry continues to make statements that his actions are in the interest of the Tata group. On the contrary, his actions thus far have consistently harmed the reputation of the Tata group. Tata Sons continues to evaluate its legal options in this regard. Tata Sons has the highest respect for the judiciary and has never resorted to “muzzle and interfere with legal proceedings”, as alleged by Mr. Cyrus P. Mistry.
