Cyrus Mistry was appointed as the Chairman of Tata Sons, in December 2012. However, Mistry was removed from the post on October 24, 2016 following a decision by the majority of the board of directors of the company. N Chandrasekaran was appointed as Executive Chairman of Tata Sons. Things got ugly and the matter reached the threashold of the court. In December, 2019, the NCLAT had pronounced that the proceedings took place on October 24, 2016 during the Board meeting of Tata Sons that lead to removal of Mistry as illegal. Both Tata Sons and Mistry had challenged the order.

The apex court had on January 10 last year granted relief to Tata group by staying the NCLAT order by which Mistry was restored as the executive chairman of the conglomerate.
