Ratan Tata conferred with highest Australian civilian honour.
Industrialist and Tata Sons' chairman emeritus Ratan Tata has been conferred with the Order of Australia, the highest Australian civil honour.
The news has been confirmed by Australian Ambassador to India Barry O’ Farrell on Twitter over the weekend, where he writes Ratan Tata is “a titan of business, industry and philanthropy” not just in India but Tata's contributions have made a significant impact in Australia.
O’Farrell tweeted, “Ratan Tata is a titan of biz, industry & philanthropy not just in India, but his contributions have also made a significant impact in Australia. Delighted to confer Order of Australia (AO) honour to Ratan Tata in recognition of his longstanding commitment to the Australia-India relationship”
The development comes after Tata was appointed as an Honorary Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia in recognition of his long-standing commitment to the Australia-India relationship, particularly in the field of trade, investment, and philanthropy.
He has been an ardent supporter of the India-Australia Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement, which came into effect in 2022.
The Australian branch of Tata Consultancy established in 1998 is known for having the largest Australian workforce of any Indian firm with about 17,000 employees. TCS Australia also provides IT services to six Australian NGOs completely free of cost.
