In a not so surprising move Carl Peters Forster who was appointed the global CEO and Managing Director of Tata Motors in February, 2010 has resigned with immediate effect.  The move is not surprising because the period in which he has been CEO and MD has been an unhappy one for Tata, especially in India, with the Nano being a non seller and still being dogged by controversies of fire and the Indigo and the Indica range sells also plummeting.  The integration of Tata’s global businesses including Jaguar/Land Rover has also not happened to the extent that Tata wanted and these are probably the reasons for Forster stepping down, though he has cited personal reasons.  He however continues to be on the Board of Governors of Tata Motors in a non-executive position.
