Days after Cyrus Mistry was ousted, Tata Group’s Human Resources chief N S Rajan has put in his papers. Rajan, who held the position of Tata Group’s chief of human resources (CHRO), was one of the members of the now disbanded Group Executive Council (GEC) set up by Mistry. He put in his papers on Saturday, sources said. Rajan came on board of the GEC in May 2013, after it was set up a month earlier headed by Mistry with the objective providing strategic and operational support to him.


On Monday, when the ouster of Mistry by the Tata Sons board was announced, the GEC was also disbanded. Soon after, Tata Group’s website removed all the details related to the GEC, including profile of the members. It was speculated that Mukund Rajan and Harish Bhat, members of the GEC would be offered new roles within the group but the fates of other members, including ex-BSE chief Madhu Kannan, strategist Nirmalya Kumar and Tata veteran Harish Bhat were unclear.

Before joining the Tata group, N S Rajan was partner and global leader, people and organisation, EY. He had also worked in various ogranisations, including erstwhile Ranbaxy, Asian Paints, BlowPlast, ABC Consultants and Asia Online.

      I think you do not know the Corporate Laws. Tata Son is unlisted and Tata Sons hold 66% stake in the Group through it's various charitable trusts. Mistry is still the Chairman of several listed group Companies and cannot be removed without following the proper procedures.
