Ratan Tata has been quoted by several newspapers as having said that it is time for Tata and Fiat to have a long hard look at their present arrangement.  Tata is not for the diluting or ending the joint programme but for strengthening it so that both Tata and Fiat benefit equally from it.  He is quoted as saying that talks between himself and Sergio Marchionne are fine but things need to get done at lower levels.  He sees a bright future if this can happen.
