Ratan Tata hogged maximum media attention in April, thanks to the extensive coverage accorded to the simultaneous but independent probes by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Public Accounts Committee, or PAC, of Parliament into the 2G spectrum scam. His appearance before the PAC in connection with the probe, as well as his admission that he had, indeed, praised A. Raja, when he was Telecom Minister, in a letter to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Karunanidhi, were extensively reported in the media.
Tata was also in the news over the succession issue and his leadership. His disclosure that his half-brother Noel Tata was in contention for the top job at Tata Group, as well as Tata Sons' Group Director R. Gopalakrishnan describing Tata as the group's "biggest asset" received wide coverage in the pink papers.Top 10 Indian CEOs
