Ratan Tata honoured by UK city of Coventry

Oct 1, 2015 16:07 IST

The city of Coventry on 1 October 2015 honoured Ratan Tata, chairman Emeritus of Tata sons, with its highest award in recognition of his contributions to the West Midlands region of central England.

The leading Indian industrialist took oath as an Honorary Freeman of the City of Coventry. Since 1914, only 13 people have been conferred with the honour.

Indian-origin professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya, founder of the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), was also honoured with the title alongside Tata, at the University of Warwick in Coventry.

Earlier in 2015, Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover had announced its long term commitment to Coventry and the West Midlands with a confirmation of a further 600 million pound investment to support product creation and superior vehicle manufacturing.

In 2000, Ratan Tata was awarded with Padma Bhushan, and was facilitated with Padma Vibhushan in 2008.
