  • HC quashes defamation proceedings against Ratan Tata, others

    Published on July 22, 2019

    The Bombay High Court has quashed proceedings initiated by a local court against Tata Sons’ former chairman Ratan Tata, its current chairman N Chandrasekaran and eight directors of the firm in a criminal defamation case.

    In December 2018, a magistrate court issued notices to Ratan Tata and the others in the criminal defamation case filed by Nusli Wadia. Wadia filed the case in 2016 after he was voted out of the boards of some Tata Group companies.

    Tata and others then approached the high court seeking to quash and set aside the proceedings initiated against them. The Court today quashed and set aside the proceedings.
