The board of Tata Group’s crown jewel TCS on Thursday met for the first time under the newly appointed Chairman Ishaat Hussain, but ousted chairman Cyrus Mistry, who continues to be a director, was not present. The board of country’s largest software exporter met at its office in downtown Mumbai in the morning, days after promoter Tata Sons replaced Mistry with Hussain and also an announcement to have a special shareholders’ meeting to ease him as a director.

The directors started streaming into the company office starting 9 am for the meeting, which sources said was scheduled for 11 am. It ended around noon, but the directors exiting TCS House were tight-lipped about any decision.

It was widely expected that the board would decide on a date of the EGM against the backdrop of majority stakeholder Tata Sons seeking shareholders’ approval to remove Mistry as a director.
