MCA may challenge part of the NCLAT order where the conversion of Tata Sons from Public to Private by RoC is termed illegal.

Won't Sit Back: The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) plans to challenge the ‘illegal’ order of the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order, which allowed conversion of Tata Sons from a public entity to a private one, in the Supreme Court.

 

The NCLAT order clearly mentions that “the decision of the Registrar of Companies (RoC) changing the company (‘Tata Sons’) from a ‘public company’ to a ‘private company’ is declared illegal and is set aside. The company (‘Tata Sons’) shall be recorded as a ‘public company’. RoC will make correction in its record showing the company (‘Tata Sons’) as ‘public company’.” Moneycontrol
