Mumbai: A day after being unceremoniously removed as the chairman of Tata Groups, Cyrus Mistry’s interview too was removed from the company’s website, media reports said today.
As per report, the interview of the ousted chairman Mistry was uploaded on the group’s corporate website about a month ago.
“In the hours after Mr Mistry’s removal was announced on Monday, links and references to him were taken off the Tata website, including the interview, the link for which now leads to a page that reads, “The page you are looking for has been moved or removed,” the NDTV reported today.
The media has also reported that anticipating legal wrangles from the side of Mistry and Shapoorji Pallonji, who are also stakeholders in the group, Tata Sons has enlisted professional help from senior advocates such as Harish N Salve and Abhishek Manu Singhvi.
Tata Sons on Monday announced that its board has replaced Mistry as Chairman of Tata Sons and named Ratan N Tata as Interim Chairman of Tata Sons. The decision was taken at a Board meeting held in Mumbai.
“The Board has constituted a Selection Committee to choose a new Chairman. The Committee comprises Mr Ratan N Tata, Mr Venu Srinivasan, Mr Amit Chandra, Mr Ronen Sen and Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya, as per the criteria in the Articles of Association of Tata Sons,” read a statement issued by Tata Sons.
“The committee has been mandated to complete the selection process in four months,” it read.
