Over recent years, Tata Motors' CV, Passenger Vehicles (PV+EV), and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) businesses have implemented distinct growth strategies and since 2021, these businesses have been functioning independently under their respective CEOs.

The demerger will be implemented through an NCLT scheme of arrangement and all shareholders of TML shall continue to have identical shareholding in both the listed entities.

While there are limited synergies between Commercial Vehicles and Passenger Vehicles businesses, there are considerable synergies to be harnessed across PV, EV, and JLR, particularly in the areas of EVs, autonomous vehicles, and vehicle software, which the demerger will help secure.

RBI bars IIFL Finance From Disbursing Gold Loans

The Reserve Bank of India (RB) on 4 March asked IIFL Finance to stop sanctioning or disbursing gold loans with immediate effect after observing certain material supervisory concerns in the company's gold loan portfolio.

Explaining the action, the central bank said an inspection of the company was carried out by the RBI concerning its financial position as of 31 March 2023, which revealed certain material supervisory concerns were observed in the gold loan portfolio of the company.

These include serious deviations in assaying and certifying purity and net weight of the gold at the time of sanction of loans and at the time of auction upon default, breaches in Loan-to-Value ratio (LTV), significant disbursal and collection of loan amount in cash far over the statutory limit among others.

Further, the RBI inspection revealed non-adherence to the standard auction process and a lack of transparency in charges being levied to customer accounts, etc.

According to the central bank, over the last few months, the RBI has been engaging with the senior management and the statutory auditors of the company on these deficiencies.
