The development took place following a meeting in the evening of Monday and partly shook Dalal Street. Ratan Tata will be the interim chairman for four months. He is also among a five-member search committee entrusted with finding a successor within this period.

The five-member board includes TVS Group head Venu Srinivasan, Amit Chandra of Bain Capital, former diplomat Ronen Sen and Lord Kumar Bhattacharya.

 




The 48-year-old Mistry took over from Ratan Tata on December 28, 2012. He became chairman on the basis of his representation from Shapoorji Palonji, the largest shareholder in Tata Sons.

The exact reason why he has been removed is not clear but analysts point out that under Mistry’s leadership, some of Tata businesses did not perform as expected especially the steel business.

Stocks of some Tata group companies did not take a hard fall at the perhaps because of Ratan Tata’s return and because the announcement came towards the closing bell.
