Tata Motors' Board Approves Demerger of Commercial and Passenger Vehicle Businesses

In a significant development within the automotive industry, Tata Motors, a prominent player in the Indian market, has unveiled plans to demerge its operations into two distinct entities: commercial vehicles (CV) and passenger vehicles (PV) businesses. The decision, greenlit by Tata Motors' board, is poised to unlock synergies and drive heightened growth opportunities within each segment.

Demerger Details

Under the proposed demerger, shareholders of Tata Motors will retain identical holdings in both listed entities, ensuring equitable distribution of assets. The move follows the earlier subsidiarisation of PV and electric vehicle (EV) businesses in 2022, marking a logical progression in the company's strategic roadmap.

The demerger will see one entity dedicated to housing the commercial vehicles business and its associated investments, while the other will focus on the passenger vehicles business, encompassing PVs, electric vehicles, Jaguar, Land Rover, and relevant investments.

Implementation of the demerger will be facilitated through an NCLT scheme of arrangement, necessitating approval from Tata Motors' board, shareholders, creditors, and regulatory bodies. The entire process is planned to conclude within a timeframe of 12-15 months.

Rationale and Impact

Tata Motors' decision to demerge comes against the backdrop of its CV, PV, and JLR businesses operating autonomously under their respective CEOs since 2021. The rationale behind this strategic manoeuvre lies in capitalising on synergies, particularly in burgeoning sectors such as EVs, autonomous vehicles, and vehicle software.

Despite the separation, Tata Motors assures stakeholders that the demerger will not adversely affect employees, customers, or business partners. On the contrary, the company believes that this realignment will enhance focus and agility, thereby fostering a superior experience for customers, driving growth opportunities for employees, and generating enhanced value for shareholders.

Chairman's Perspective

N Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Motors, expressed confidence in the company's robust turnaround in recent years. He emphasised that the demerger will empower each automotive business unit to leverage market opportunities more effectively, aligning with Tata Motors' overarching goal of sustainable growth and innovation.

N Chandrasekaran, asserts, Tata Motors has scripted a strong turnaround in the last few years. The three automotive business units are now operating independently and delivering consistent performance. This demerger will help them better capitalise on the opportunities provided by the market by enhancing their focus and agility.

He also added, This will lead to a superior experience for our customers, better growth prospects for our employees and, enhanced value for our shareholders.

Financial Performance

Tata Motors' third-quarter performance underscores its strong trajectory, with a notable year-on-year profit surge of 133 per cent to Rs 7,100 crore. Additionally, revenue witnessed a substantial uptick of 25 per cent, reaching Rs 1.11 lakh crore, signalling the company's resilience and market relevance.


Tata Motors' decision to demerge its CV and PV businesses represents a strategic pivot aimed at enhancing operational efficiency, fostering innovation, and driving sustained growth. As the automotive landscape evolves, Tata Motors remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering value to stakeholders while consolidating its position as a frontrunner in both commercial and passenger vehicle segments.
