Tata's Bombay house

Last Updated: Fri, Dec 14, 2012 05:06 hrs

Post-retirement, Ratan Tata is not only getting a new home tucked in a corner in tony Colaba in Mumbai, he is also shifting his office from Bombay House, the iconic Tata group headquarters.

Insiders say Tata's new office will be situated in the Elphinstone building, which overlooks the majestic Asiatic Library and Horniman Circle in Fort. Keeping him company will be confidant R K Krishna Kumar, who will also shift to the new office.

The Tata group recently opened India's first Starbucks outlet on the ground floor of the building to a rousing welcome from Mumbaikars. While many Bombay House insiders will be sad to see Tata go, animal lovers are wondering about the fate of the stray dogs that Ratan Tata ensured were fed everyday and had free access to Bombay House.
