Business Confidential: Mistry meeting with the FM

Mistry meeting with the FM

The pre-budget meeting of the finance minister and the industry is about the first time the government and the industry meet in the new year. This year the buzz is about whether the new chairman of Tata Group Cyrus Mistry will make the trip to New Delhi. Indications are, he might. The chairman emeritus of the group had become a regular of late, and Mistry in his first year might want to start on a note of engagement with Raisina Hill.
