MUMBAI -- India's Supreme Court ruled in favor of the country's leading conglomerate Tata Group on Friday by upholding the 2016 removal of Cyrus Mistry as executive chairman.

The ruling ends a four-year battle between the group and its former chairman. The country's top court overturned an appellate decision that deemed it "illegal" for Tata Group to dismiss Mistry and appoint Natarajan Chandrasekaran as chairman.
