The press release issued by Mistry’s office on Tuesday had said Tata Sons paid for PR work done for Tata Trusts. Nanda said this was in accordance with Mistry’s “specific” instructions. Nanda also asked why Mistry had agreed to extend the contract between Tata Sons and Rediffusion beyond its five-year term, rather than terminating it when there was an option to do so after three years. Mistry's office couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
