> The reason is that, TATA Group's 96 companies are held
> by its main Company "TATA Sons" and the main owner

> which JRD TATA Trust & Sir Ratan Tata Trust are the
> main. 65% ownership of TATA Sons which is the key holding

> And that's much more than the Warren Buffet's
> Current Net Worth of $62 billion, the world's richest
> person according to Forbes magazine 2008.
> However, it doesn't mean that Ratan Tata is poor.
> In one interviews he had told the reporter that, "I
> have my own Capital".
> He is the chairman of Tata Group so obviously he earns lots
> of money every year as a bonus, remuneration and salary.
> However, Ratan Tata's Net worth is not $1 Billion.

> richest person of the world.
> His net worth in reality is more than Bill Gates and
> Warren Buffet.
> SO the good thing about Tata Group is that, They do Charity
> out of their Money ...
> And that is the reason TATA Group has generated so much of
> Goodwill over last 5 generations.
