MUMBAI (NewsRise) -- Tata Sons, the holding company of India's largest conglomerate, is consolidating its businesses across aerospace and defense sectors under a single entity in a bid to more effectively tap a government push to turn the nation into a manufacturing hub.

The entity Tata Aerospace and Defence will encompass the full range of solutions across land mobility, aerospace, weapons system, sensors and command controls, and communication, Tata Sons said in a statement on Wednesday. The necessary statutory and regulatory approvals are being obtained, the Mumbai-based company said.
