  • Tata Group is in discussions with Uber Technologies for a strategic alliance to enhance Tata's digital platform.
  • Tata Neu, Tata's 'super app,' faces user growth and engagement challenges, prompting talks with Uber.
  • Tata Sons plans to inject around $1 billion into Tata Digital, seeking to boost its digital subsidiary.

The Tata Group is in talks with Uber Technologies for a strategic partnership to increase traffic and engagement on Tata's digital platform. The alliance may involve integrating Uber's services into Tata's ecosystem. 

Tata Neu, a comprehensive 'super app,' has faced challenges with user growth and customer engagement. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi met with Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekaran earlier this year and is expected to meet again during his upcoming trip to India. 

However, Tata Sons plans to inject approximately $1 billion into its digital subsidiary, Tata Digital, in the coming years. Last October, Tata Group contemplated an extra $1 billion investment in its super app, Tata Neu. 

To date, Tata Sons has already invested over $2 billion in Neu and has received board approvals for additional capital infusion over five years. In the meantime, Tata Digital has named Naveen Tahilyani as its new CEO and MD. Tahilyani will assume his role on February 19th.
