Cond……• An increased complexity in the cross holdings among group companies is a classic counter takeover defense strategy.• As we see that TATA group companies have increased their investment in other group companies at a rapid pace compared to the slow rise in their dividend payments.

CONTROVERCIES AND CRITICISMApart from success there are also some controverciesassociated with tata groups some are:Kalinganagar CONTROVERCIES,Orissa Dow Chemicals,Land acquisition in Singur ,Dhamra PortSoda extraction plant in Tanzania
Singur controversyTata Nano Singur Controversy refers to thecontroversy generated by land acquisition of theproposed Nano factory of Tata Motors at [Singur] inHooghly district, West Bengal, India.
Kalinagar controversyOn 2 January 2006, policemen atKalinganagar, Orissa, opened fire at a crowd of tribalvillagers. The villagers were protesting theconstruction of a compound wall on land historicallyowned by them, for a Tata steel plant. Some of thecorpses were returned to the families in a mutilatedcondition. When pushed for comment, TATA officialssaid the incident was unfortunate but that it wouldcontinue with its plans to set up the plant.
Orissa Dow Chemicals,In November 2006, survivors of the Bhopal gas disasterwere outraged by Ratan Tata’s offer to bail out UnionCarbide and facilitate investments by Carbide’s new ownerDow Chemical. Tata had proposed leading a charitableeffort to clean-up the toxic wastes abandoned by Carbidein Bhopal. At a time when the Government of India hasheld Dow Chemical liable for the clean-up and requestedRs. 100 crores from the American MNC, survivor’s groupsfelt that Tata’s offer was aimed at frustrating legal effortsto hold the company liable, and motivated by a desire tofacilitate Dow’s investments in India.
Dhamra PortThe Dhamra port, a venture between Tata Steel and Larsen &Toubro, has come in for criticism for its proximity to theGahirmatha Sanctuary and Bhitarkanika National Park, fromIndian and international organisations, including Greenpeace..TATA officials have denied that the port poses an ecologicalthreat, and stated that mitigation measures are being employedwith the advice of the IUCN. On the other hand, conservationorganisations, including Greenpeace, have pointed out that noproper Environment Impact Analysis has been done for theproject, which has undergone changes in size and specificationssince it was first proposed and that the port could interfere withmass nesting at the Gahirmtha beaches and the ecology of theBitharkanika mangrove forest.
Soda extraction plant in TanzaniaTata group, along with a Tanzanian company, joined forces to build a sodaash extraction plant in Tanzania. The Tanzanian government is all for theproject. On the other hand, environmental activists are opposing theplant because it would be near Lake Natron, and it could possibly affect thelakes ecosystem and its neighbouring dwellers.Tata was planning to change the site of the plant so it would be built 32 kmfrom the lake, but the opposition still thinks it would negatively disturb theenvironment. It could also jeopardise the Lesser Flamingo birdsthere, which are already endangered. Lake Natron is where two thirds ofLesser Flamingos reproduce. Producing soda ash involves drawing outsalt water from the lake, and then disposing the water back to the lake. Thisprocess could interrupt the chemical make up of the lake. Twenty-twoAfrican nations are against the creation of the project and have signed apetition to stop its construction.
