Tata should not have bought JLR-I told you so

I have discussed earlier that there was no need for Tata to buy Jaguar/Landrover company. Not only Tatas didn’t have a strategic fit (its car brands are no where close to JLR in terms of positioning) but also they were looking for unnatural growth by buying a company and brands which were too big for Tatas car manufacturing capabilities and brands. Its going to be a tough time for Tatas in the coming months/years.

The financial problem is going to be compounded by another purchase that they made, that is, Corus.

As I have said earlier, we need to spread ourselves according to our chaddar (read remain within our means).
