TOKYO -- Tata Group patriarch Ratan Tata has come out strongly in support of Natarajan Chandrasekaran, the former Tata Consultancy Services chief executive who took the group's reins as chairman in February.

In his first interview with a foreign media outlet since the ouster of Cyrus Mistry, who served as chairman for four years, Tata praised Chandrasekaran as a fast mover. Tata said he has a close, "informal" working relationship with the new chairman and expressed confidence in his leadership of the $103 billion salt-to-software conglomerate.
