“All the appeals put forward by Tata Sons against Cyrus Mistry are permitted,” the bench led by the Chairman of the Indian Judge (CJI) Bobde added.

Misty has replaced Ratan Tata as Chair of the Sons Tata in 2012 but was overthrown four years later in a council.

About problems related to the assessment of shares and the Shapoorji Pallonji (SP) group promises its shares in Tata Sons to raise funds, the top court states that both parties are in Liberty to raise this before the appropriate forum and that the court will not pass order.

Tata Trust, which has 66 percent of shares in Tata Sons, chaired by Ratan Tata. The Mistry family has 18.4 percent of the shares in the company.

The bench, also consisted of Judge A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, on December 17 last year ordered a verdict on this problem.

The SP Group has notified the Best Court on December 17 that Mistry’s elimination as the leader of the Son of Tata is similar to “blood sports” and “ambush” and fully violates the principles of corporate governance and violations of the pervasive association in the process.

Tata Group, on the other hand,

violently opposed the allegations and said there was no error and the board was good in his right to remove wrongly like the chairman.

The APEX court on January 10 last year provided assistance to Tata Group with the Stay of National Legal Stay Appellate Tribunal (NCLlat) in December 18, 2019 where Mistry was restored as chairman of the Conglomerate Executive.
