He spoke at length about a variety of subjects - ranging from his experience at the helm of the group, a role he assumed in 2012; to his "Vision 2025", a long-term "sustainable, profitable growth" strategy; to his interactions with Ratan Tata; to the group's emphasis on a digital future; worries that some group company had taken on "significant debt", and, ironically enough - given the circumstances surrounding his removal as chairman - the business craft of finding a balance between modernity and tradition. What follows is the full text of that interview, retrieved from Google's web cache.

It was taken off tata.com consequent to the 24 October announcement that Mistry was being removed as the chairman of the group, to be replaced by the man he replaced, Ratan Tata, who will serve as interim chairman for four months.
