Ratan Tata frustrated over “bureaucratic delays”, says US media report

Ratan Tata, the chairman of $67 billion business conglomerate, is frustrated as he has not been able to expand his business in India the way he wished. And who’s to blame for that? According to a detailed interview-based article published in world’s largest circulated business daily, The Wall Street Journal on April 13, the 73-year-old Tata said bureaucratic delays, arbitrary regulatory decisions and widespread corruption prevented his domestic ambitions in sectors such as steel, power, aviation and telecommunications. These are some of the sectors where government’s regulatory mechanism is very high.
Tata’s words are taken seriously by investors abroad as his group has presence in many key markets around the world. After all, he is the owner of many foreign assets including Jaguar cars, the Pierre Hotel in New York and Tetley tea among others.
