The current slowdown notwithstanding, the Indian growth story is making waves all over the world. The automobile retail trade in India owes a lot to Tata for the leadership and direction provided by him over the years.”

“The home-grown OEMs such as Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, and Mahindra & Mahindra are conquering new frontiers across the world. The Indian vehicle manufacturers, backed by a fast developing domestic auto component industry, have risen to the challenge and stood up to the technological and financial might of global auto majors. The fact that Indian automobile companies are giving the global auto giants a run for their money speaks volumes of the engineering and R&D capabilities as well as the managerial acumen and entrepreneurial skills of Indian industry.”

His business acumen, ethical business practices and excellent corporate governance track record, have earned him laurels and accolades not only in India but across the globe.
