Tata Sons Limited Key Developments

NTT Docomo Moves US District Court against Tata Sons

NTT Docomo, which has a partnership with Tata Teleservices and operates Tata DoCoMo, has moved to a United States district court to force Tata Group to pay the $1.17 billion in arbitrary order from a London court for breach of contract. Docomo said that it would continue to 'seek enforcement globally until it receives the full amount due', while Tata Sons maintains that it will resist enforcement in India, and in any other jurisdiction that Docomo files for enforcement. Tata cites RBI regulation for non-payment. NTT Docomo secured the arbitration from London Court of International Arbitration in June. Tata on the other hand resisted the enforcement of the arbitration award in India, stating that the delay in payments was due to RBI's foreign exchange regulations that prevents Tata from paying out the entire amount in a single transaction.

Tata Sons Plans Acquisitions
