Tata Sons moves SC against NCLAT order to reinstate Cyrus Mistry

Tata Sons on Thursday moved the Supreme Court against last month’s tribunal order restoring Cyrus Mistry as company’s chairman.

Tata Sons has challenged the complete order of the Tribunal judgement and sought a stay on it in the wake of TCS board meeting on January 9. The firm’s lawyers will seek an urgent hearing on the matter after top court reopens on January 6.

Cyrus Mistry was restored as the executive chairman of Tata Sons on December 18 by the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), three years after he was sacked at a board meeting.

Mistry had contested his removal as chairman in 2016.

The NCLAT, last month sided with Mistry, deeming the appointment of N Chandrasekaran as group chairman illegal.
