Hello. Venkat sorry, I think the Network as usual. Yeah

Ratan Tata: Hello, Niira,

Niira Radia: Hi

Ratan Tata: Hi, no, I just actually, they've just come...so now we are going to the [?]  institute and then to the airport [lots of disturbance and unclear bits here]...

Niira Radia: So, you’re still in the Middle East?

Ratan Tata: Yeah. I am still in Israel.

Niira Radia: Ok, ok, awright, great. So you'll be in London in the evening then

Ratan Tata: Yeah, so if there's something, I can call you from London when I get there

Niira Radia: No, no nothing urgent. I just wanted you to know that the indicative [term sheet?] has gone off to CRN Ravi

Ratan Tata: OK

Niira Radia: And that process has started in terms of content. I think CR hasn't responded to the indicative [term sheet?] but I spoke to him and I think that's underway, and Sanjay had got a missed call from you yesterday, on his voice mail

Ratan Tata: Yeah. I called him and he didn't pick up and then the voice mail came, and so...

Niira Radia: That's right. He said that and then he sent me a very late SMS and I have given him Venkat's numbers now..

Ratan Tata: No, I'll call him again today

Niira Radia: Ok. Whenever he's... anyway, he's in [Gayden?] tomorrow and you should meet up with him tomorrow...whenever...I just wanted you to know. The budget was okay. Rural growth...

Ratan Tata: Yeah. It didn’t do anything one way or another. I guess the only concern I have is that I understand that Maran is going hammer and tongs for Raja. And I hope Raja doesn’t trip or slip or...

Niira Radia: No, he hasn’t, because the chief justice has issued a statement that no minister called the high court judge. (A Madras High Court judge had alleged that a Union minister had tried to influence him, and Dayanidhi Maran immediately pointed fingers at A. Raja.)

Ratan Tata: Oh, really?

Niira Radia: The Chief Justice of India has issued that statement. So that is clarified. And in any case that did not happen and Maran is made to look a little bit of a fool.

Ratan Tata: Okay.

Niira Radia: And, in any case, if something did happen, as far as that is concerned, it would bring Kani (Kanimozhi) into that position, not Maran.

Ratan Tata: Okay.

Niira Radia: I think that's a given. That's been decided between them. But there was no such thing that Raja has done.

Ratan Tata: Okay.

Niira Radia: It was in any case, it was actually the president of the bar association who said "I know the minister" in an open court and the judge said don't bring the cabinet minister's influence in my court"

Ratan Tata: Okay.

Niira Radia: Raja had not called up for that at all. That's got clarified.

Ratan Tata: Okay.

Niira Radia: Allright then, I will speak to you later. Have a good flight.
