Less than a month after the Supreme Court stayed an order reinstating him as Tata Sons chairman, Cyrus Mistry has moved the apex court seeking removal of many anomalies in the NCLAT order, saying his family deserved more relief from the tribunal.
Mistry, whose family owns 18.37 per cent stake in Tata Sons, has filed a cross appeal in the court. Generally, a cross appeal refers to an appeal made against certain facets of a judgement.
On January 25, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Arvind Bobde stayed the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order dated December 18, wherein Mistry was reinstated as Tata Sons chairman. The stay came on an appeal filed by Tata Group.
In the petition, Mistry has described the group’s relationship with Tatas as “a quasi-partnership relationship of a vintage of over 60 years, holding 18.37 per cent in the equity share capital of Tata Sons and whose stake is now worth over Rs 1.5 lakh crore”.
